The hotel featured in the film, “The French Lieutenant’s Woman”. Please send articles to me, Andrew Townsend, at or add a comment. Thanks to David Moss for all his work.

An Idea from Lyme Regis

Sadly, John Fowles, the author of "The French Lieutenants Woman, who was a resident of Lyme Regis died on 5th November. His obituary in the Daily Telegraph on 8th November referred to a trust that he set up in 1998 in order to leave his 18th-century house to a group of academic institutions to be run as a writing centre for students. Could a similar use and means of support be found for the Three Cups Hotel?
