The Coastline - Dorset North

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...
Simon Harris is organising this fundraiser. I am raising money to build a sea border wall in the English Channel to protect the United Kingdom from illegal immigrants. Our government has said that they intend to turn migrant boats back and force them into French waters, but they won't need...
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 coastal section is on the southern side of a geological...
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...
