Durdle Door

The picture above is of a pathway I descended from a car park, just off the road that leads to Lulworth Cove, which is a mile or so from Durdle Door. At the edge of one the chalkstone cliffs at the end of the windy path I could see more chalkstone cliffs to the right and left

Looking out to sea and below the cliff edge I was stood on, at the foot of the long windy path is Durdle Door. It is a perfect coastal arch, carved out, by the erosive action of the sea

The rocks in this area are of chalk, from the Cretatious Period of approximately 65 million years ago

Beautifull isnt it! I'm very lucky to live in so close to such an interesting and beautifull coastline!
