Walking

Discover the history, old mills and wildlife of the River Lim Valley by walking along the beautiful and restored footpath from the village of Uplyme to Lyme Regis, which is easy to follow in both directions, with opportunities for shorter circular routes also available. The path also forms part of both the East Devon Way which leads to Exmouth and the Wessex Ridgeway, which leads as far as Marlborough in Wiltshire. Both of these are recognised as long distance paths, but the walk to Lyme Regis is only 1.5 miles/2.4km!

The River Lim Path Walk leaflet and the improvements to the River Lim footpath were coordinated by Lyme Forward and the Dorset Coast Forum in 2018 and were funded by the government’s Coastal Communities Fund.

Thanks and acknowledgement are due to Richard Bull of the Lyme Regis Philpot Museum, as the historical information in the leaflet is based on his documented research, including the old photographs.
