Lulworth Cove - View from Hill - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT
A panorama taken on the higher coastal path from Durdle Door and Man o'War to Lulworth Cove. The light is low as it was late in the day. The panorama shows Lulworth village nestled in the hills and also Lulworth Cove itself. The cluster of buildings near the cove contain a Heritage Site Visitor Centre and then a number of restaurants, pubs, hotels and B&B places dotted around. You can also see the Lulworth end of the Lulworth-Durdle Door chalk path as it leaves the car park at the bottom of the hill.

A panoramic picture taken from the west side of Lulworth Cove just below the cliffs that lead to Stair Hole, famous for the Lulworth Crumple. Lulworth Cove is a world famous cove, not only as a site of outstanding natural beauty, but also as a classical text-book example of sea erosion through hard rock (in this case limestone) to softer rock (clay) behind it, leading to the development of a circular with a narrow entrance. Such coves provide natural protected anchoring places, and not surprisingly there are always yachts and boats at anchor or moored in the bay. Fishing has played a long part in the history of Lulworth. This area has become a major tourist attraction and there area numerous hotels and Bed and Breakfast (B&B) places scattered around. Many people walk over the hills to Durdle Door and Man o'War. On the way over there are panoramic views over Lulworth and the cove along the main path, while those walking up to the very top of the hill are rewarded with panoramic views over the hills of Dorset. Lulworth and the surrounding area are part of a World Heritage Site and the Jurassic Coast.
