Campaigning for preservation of the hotel where J.R.R. Tolkien stayed and gained inspiration for his mythology. Jane Austen, G.K. Chesterton, Tennyson and H.W. Longfellow were also guests. The hotel featured in the film, “The French Lieutenant’s Woman”. Please send articles to me, Andrew Townsend, at firstname.lastname@example.org or add a comment. Thanks to David Moss for all his work. Comments are closed at WDDC for the plans to redevelop the site but you can still write to the papers.
An article in The Daily Telegraph today describes how some of the architectural heritage of Lyme Regis is being reproduced in China. This suggests to me that there is some potential for increasing the number of visitors who might pay to come and stay in Lyme Regis from other parts of the world. It may therefore be possible with some appropriate publicity about the town's heritage to increase the market for the ailing hotel trade in the area. Such action could well result in paying guests returning to the Three Cups Hotel.
