Dark Dorset website. Weymouth lies about thirty miles east of Lyme Regis along the Dorset coast, and like Lyme it started out as a working port and fishing town before re-inventing itself as a popular seaside resort in the late eighteenth century. Weymouth is a much bigger town, however, with more than fifty thousand inhabitants compared to less than five thousand in Lyme. There are numerous ghost stories attached to Weymouth, and for several years Alex Woodward has organized "Ghost Walks" in the town. She has now written a book on the subject, Haunted Weymouth... click here to read my review of it.
