The Lower Cobb is the older, lower section of the breakwater, linked to the upper section by several narrow stairways. The most precarious of these are those known as 'Granny's teeth', and tradition has it that these are the ones from which Louisa Musgrove falls.

The Cobb is also known as the point from which the French Lieutenant's Woman stares out to sea in John Fowles' 1969 novel of that name.
