Geography teacher Action Man, a censored ‘Sensational Groyne’ magazine and a cliff erosion calendar featuring none other than Cliff Richard all feature in a tongue-in-cheek art exhibition at Sidmouth Library.

The Jurassic Coast Team commissioned the work in 2012 and has since toured it around venues in Dorset and East Devon.

The artists had a wide brief and what they came back with was a sideways look at the issues.

The Jurassic Coast Team’s Guy Kerr said: “People love it – you’ve got to get up close to see what it’s all about but rewards close attention. Libraries are a great venue to host it.”

The exhibition will only be at Sidmouth Library until next Friday (February 12).
