Lulworth Cove



At Lulworth Cove, limestone forms a massive barrier against the sea. A perfect horseshoe bay has developed where a stream breached and eroded the limestone allowing the sea to enter the valley and hollow out the softer clays lying behind the limestone barrier. The chalk forms a resistant cliff at the back of the bay. The cove is one of the most famous features within the World Heritage site
