Coastal Erosion - Good or Bad for Lyme Regis? A range of views captured on a video created & produced by Richard Edmunds and Woodroffe School

Coastal Erosion - Good or Bad for Lyme Regis?

This 25-minute film was produced in 2016, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund as part of the Lyme Regis Museum expansion. It was made by Richard Edmunds and a small team in conjunction with sixth form Geography and Photography students from the local Woodroffe School, and the results are of a very high standard.

The film investigates coastal erosion at Lyme Regis, capturing local views about erosion and the threats to the town at a point in time by interviewing a wide range of people on the issue; it also tells us what the pupils themselves got from the project.

The project was led by Dot Wood, just retired from the school; Richard helped by pulling the whole thing together, and preparation work with the pupils. Local film maker Justin Owen did the filming, with the pupils and editing. The pupils were able to obtain a much more candid interviews than perhaps a professional TV crew would get.

The film is available below, and at the school’s website:
