Dorset's Jurassic Coast - World Heritage site
Jurassic Coastline
A 95-mile (150 kilometres) stretch of coastline in Dorset and Devon has been declared a World Heritage Site because of its wealth of prehistoric remains. The Jurassic Coast is considered to be the only place in the world displaying unbroken evidence of 185 million years of evolution. Purbeck, the source of the stone Tony uses to make his plates and vessels, lies at the eastern end of the World Heritage site.

Dinosaur footprints are found among the spectacular limestone coves and headlands of Purbeck and the Isle of Portland - a coastline not only of scientific importance but also of inspiring beauty, with an amazing wealth of fossil sites and landforms.

Purbeck's downlands and meadows teem with wildflowers, birds and butterflies, and the south-facing limestone cliffs host an important seabird colony and nesting peregrine falcons. Bottlenose dolphins are regularly sighted.
