Walking Event – Durdle Door

December 16, 2023 all-day

Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door (on the Jurassic Coast in Dorset, England). The surroundings are beautiful, and we’ll be treated to panoramic views and crystal clear waters on the stretch of this UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Lulworth Cove in particular is one of the finest examples of this type of land formation and was formed by the combined force of the sea and a river swollen by melting ice at the end of the last Ice Age. Lulworth Cove is world famous for its unique geology and landforms including the Lulworth Crumple and Stair Hole.

Durdle Door is probably the most famous stone arch anywhere in the world. It was created when the sea pierced through the Portland limestone around 10,000 years ago. Looking west over the beach, isolated stacks out at sea show where an older coastline once lay. This part of the coast is formed from merged bays and gives us a glimpse of how Lulworth Cove and Stair Hole may look in several thousand years’ time.
