Wanderlust Wednesday: Durdle Door, Dorset

Piloting a new unoriginally named weekly photo post.

Every Wednesday I post a photo I took and a little description of the place. Most of the time these places will be in England due to it being my homeland.

Durdle Door is part of the famous Jurassic Coast. It is a naturally occurring limestone arch. Most people are unaware that it is privately owned, it is fully accessible to the public however. From this year it will get harder to access the beach as the steps down have been closed. The family are in dispute with Natural England over the recent Coastal Access Law, basically they seem to be miffed that they would now be liable for accidents there and thus have closed off the steps. These steps were quite awkward and slippery when I was last there so maybe its for the best. Durdle Door has been seen in the films Far From The Madding Crowd (1967), Wilde, and Nanny McPhee. Definitly somewhere to see if visiting the south coast.
