Candles on the Cobb 2012
Lyme Regis, Weymouth
So what is Candles on The Cobb?The simple answer is a magical, stunning event when candles are placed at thirty centimetre intervals around the historic Cobb and North Wall of the harbour at Lyme Regis and lit. The candles are 'sold' to aid charities and local youth causes in Lyme Regis. The harbour walls in Lyme Regis are themselves historical and visually exciting as they stretch out into the waters of Lyme Bay. Many of the people who have seen the Cobb alight with candles have said that it is one of the most moving things they have ever witnessed. Candles have a strong significance for many people and that is why they will 'Buy a Candle to Remember Someone – Be part of It'.Candles on the Cobb is the brainchild of two local friends, Mike Higgs, the Deputy Harbourmaster, and Phil Street the Town Crier. They first conceived it as the latest in a series of fund-raising activities that the two have been engaged in for many years.Something very special not to be missed!!
