Mary Anning Wing, Lyme Regis

Growth Deal funding awarded £56,250

Awarded to Lyme Regis Museum

Local Growth Funding was allocated towards the new Mary Anning Wing extension of the Lyme Regis Museum. Lyme Regis Museum welcomed its most famous patron, Sir David Attenborough, to lead a special inauguration ceremony for the Mary Anning Wing, the new extension which opened in July 2017.

Tourism is a key sector for Dorset and this impressive addition to one of Dorset’s much-loved museums will help to contribute to the wider economic well-being of the region through the creation of jobs, and increased visitor numbers and local spend.
