Eype, near Bridport, Dorset

Eype is a small village in south west Dorset, England. The village is situated on the Jurassic Coast, several miles west of Bridport. Eype means "steep place" and many of its buildings can be traced back to the late eighteenth or early nineteenth centuries, but little is known in detail until the Victorian era. To its west, Eype Beach has the magnificent 'Golden Cap' - the highest cliff on the south coast at 191m above sea level.
