Point of interest

Descending steeply from the top of Broad Street down to the river at Mill Green and Coombe Street, this old packhorse route dates back to Saxon times and is passable to pedestrians only. It was named when Lyme was the property of the diocese of Sherborne Abbey, and the activities of the early settlement were mainly fishing and the production of salt. It contains a mixture of architecture from rows of thatched cottages with neat front gardens, tall Georgian houses with fine overhanging casement windows to more modern homes.
