Lyme Regis is home for the present day author John Fowles, who lives in a house with a fine view over the harbour and the sea. His most famous novels include 'The Collector' (1963), 'The Magus' (1966), and 'The French Lieutenant's Woman' (1969), set in Lyme Regis. This latter novel gives a good impression of the town in the mid-Victorian period, and Fowles is an avid researcher of local history, and one time curator of the Lyme Regis Museum. He has also written a short history of Lyme Regis.
