Save The Three Cups Hotel

The Three Cups Hotel

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 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.

What sort of plans?

A report in the Bridport News says that Palmers have appointed Archial Architects to draw up plans for redeveloping "The Cups".

I've had a quick look at Archial’s website and I saw words like:

large multi-million pound HQ Buildings
speculative projects
owner occupied schemes
purpose built premises
high technology research offices and laboratories

I was hoping to see words like


But presumably the planning authorities will act in the interests of the community to ensure that The Three Cups will be restored in the interests of the people of Lyme Regis and the English speaking world as an historical monument of great cultural importance and AS A HOTEL where tourists can come and stay.
