Axmouth to Lyme Regis Undercliffs

The Undercliffs NNR stretches almost seven miles in length between Axmouth in the west and Lyme Regis in the east and can be accessed via the South West Coast Path National Trail which runs through the entire length of the reserve. The NNR is one of the largest active coastal landslide systems in Western Europe.

Lying at the heart of the ‘Jurassic Coast’ World Heritage Site it has been described as one of the finest wilderness areas in Great Britain. The reserve has excellent geological exposures from the Triassic, Cretaceous and Jurassic eras and is internationally famous for fossils. The site is also a Special Area for Conservation and has superb areas of natural ash woodland.
