The History

The layers of sedimentary rock along the Jurassic Coast can be read like a book.

They reveal the history of Earth across 185 million years and form a near complete record of the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods.

Exploring this immense story takes us on a walk-through time across deserts, tropical seas, ancient forests and lush swamps, recorded in rock and laid out along the 95 mile stretch of coast between Exmouth in East Devon and Studland Bay in Dorset. Discover the Highlights of the Jurassic Coast.

It is a site of outstanding international importance for Earth Science. For this reason, the Dorset and East Devon Coast – the Jurassic Coast – was designated as England’s first natural World Heritage Site in 2001.

The Locations

Freshwater Beach

Locations don’t come better than the one you’ll find here for these events. The finish area is situated in a spectacular expanse on Dorset’s Jurassic Coast. Enclosed by impressive sandstone cliffs and gentle grassy slopes, the scenery is spectacular.

Lulworth Visitors Centre

One of the Jurassic Coast’s most iconic landscapes, Lulworth Cove at low tide reveals wonderful rock pools teeming with sea creatures. The Visitor Centre is in the heart of the village that is world famous for its unique geology and landforms including the Lulworth Crumple and Stair Hole.

 

Osmington Mills

The coastline around Osmington Mills has fossils in the cliffs. The rocks consist of Kimmeridge Clay and the Corallian group from the Oxfordian (Upper Jurassic) and have an interesting trace fossil assemblage. To the west are Black Head and beyond that Redcliff Point, with fossils in the Upper Oxford Clay.
