Lulworth Cove

Lulworth forms part of the Dorset and East Devon World Heritage Site popularly known as the ‘Jurassic Coast’. 95 miles of coast represent 185 million years of the Earth’s History with rocks from the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous time periods. Around a third of the time of complex life on Earth is represented in these cliffs preserved in fossil form.

The World Heritage Site status was awarded by UNESCO in December 2001 with the site being formally opened by the Prince of Wales at Lulworth Cove in October 2002. As England’s first natural WHS it offers universal value to all mankind.
