LULWORTH COVE / DURDLE DOOR - 25/09/09
This long overdue page of photographs are from Dorset's Jurassic Coast and include details and pictures from a short walk last September 2009 from Lulworth Cove to Durdle Door.
|This walk is only about 2.5miles long and starts from the Information Centre at Lulworth Cove. Although very short the route does involve a sharp climb from Lulworth Cove to Durdle Door and back again. Perhaps not surprisingly Durdle Door is one of the most photographed features in the Country. The rock arch was created by softer rock being eroded whilst harder limestone remained standing.|
|Views of Lulworth and the spectacular coastal scenery on the walk, the village is a good base for visiting Dorset with plenty to see and do in the area including Weymouth, the famous Chesil Beach and Lyme Regis a little further away to the west.|
|Lulworth Cove was also created by coastal erosion, forming a natural sheltered harbour popular with tourists for swimming and boat rides to explore the surrounding coast; the information centre in Lulworth provides more details about the area including more about its 150 million year history.|
