The Coastline - Dorset North

Another good location to see Gad Cliff is from WorbarrowTout which is accessible from Tynham, the abandoned village between Kimmeridge and Lulworth. It lies within the Lulworth Army Firing Range and was evacuated during the Second World War for defence training purposes and has remained empty ever since. However, it is possible to visit when the...
The west side of Worbarrow Bay has more of interest. As with Worbarrow Bay mentioned in article 6 it is only accessible during most weekends and school holidays when the Lulworth Ranges are open. The area can be accessed from Lulworth Cove. Walk around the Cove and use the steps on the east side to reach the coastal footpath. Go through...
Returning from Bacon Hole to Lulworth Cove there are steps down to the famous Fossil Forest section. Unfortunately, no trees are still preserved there but you can see where the trees have been. The rocks exposed are the top of the Portland Limestone and the lowest part of the...
Walking up the steps from St Oswald’s Bay you can return to the Coast Path or walk down into Durdle Cove. This is I think the unofficial name, the Ordnance Survey maps do not seem to give it a name! You are likely to notice the remains of steps down to the beach...
The next section of the coast is not particularly accessible and unless you have a canoe or some other water craft you can’t access the beach until you get west of White Nothe. However it is well worth the walk either from Lulworth or from the National Trust car...
It is possible to reach St Oswald’s Bay via the private road that leaves Lulworth Cove behind the Heritage Centre. Alternatively you can take the coastal footpath from the Heritage Centre car park or you can drive to the Durdle Door car park and walk down the footpath from there. There are fine views along the...
Working west from Osmington Mills access to the beach from Osmington via a minor road is either down the steep path from the Smugglers’ Inn car park or from the coast path and steps just to the east of the pub. As with the previous section from Bran Point to Osmington Mills, a low tide is necessary to...
Access to this section is via the footpath from Osmington village past the PGL outdoor activity centre and the steps to the beach. Jurassic Corallian rocks can be seen immediately reaching the beach and these dip to the east as they are part of an anticlinal fold (dome shape) which...
Dorset, a beautiful county located in the south-west of England, offers a variety of attractions and scenic spots for visitors and locals to explore. Here is a list of the top 50 places to visit in Dorset: Durdle Door: A natural limestone arch on the Jurassic Coast, providing breathtaking coastal...
Once again, swimmers in the UK have been disappointed as the latest bathing water quality data reveals a lack of clean and healthy waters for the summer. According to the European Environment Agency, only 110 coastal and inland sites in the UK were classified as excellent, out of a...
