The French Lieutenant’s Woman

The Cobb has invited what familiarity breeds for at least seven hundred years, and the real Lymers will never see much more to it than a long claw of old grey wall that flexes itself against the sea.
— John Fowles, opening lines to the French Lieutenant’s Woman.

The Cobb, is the name given to the long curved harbour all in Lyme Regis.
