Lulworth Cove, Dorset

20180505_140718

 

Situated on the stunning Dorset coast, Lulworth Cove was created as a result of the sea breaking through a comparatively thin layer of hard Portland Stone that runs parallel to the shoreline. This formed the stunning and picturesque sheltered cove that can be seen today. It is part of the same section of the Jurassic Coastline as Durdle Door. Around half a million people visit the Cove each year to take in the stunning views of the Cove itself as well as the coastline.

Part of the landscape at the Cove was created as result of tectonic plate movement, such as the rocks below.

Durdle Door, Dorset

 

20180505_122501

 

Durdle Door in Dorset is a natural limestone arch that was formed as waves on the coast eroded the rocks and bored a hole through them. Located on the Lulworth Estate in Dorset, the arch is part of section known as the Jurassic Coast. Its name comes from an old English word ‘thirl’, which means to pierce, bore or drill.

The walk to the Door is not too bad, however it’s advisable to have sensible walking shoes. Also make sure to remember sun protection and a hat as it can get very warm on the way. There are two beaches at the door ; however the one further from the door is inaccessible at the moment due to the steps down being damaged. You can still see the amazing views like the one above, including the incredible blue waters below.

The water by the Door is amazingly clear and the beach you can get to is a pebble beach where you can sit and look at the stunning cliff faces and the Door itself.

There is a car park a short walk from the Door, however you can also get a bus from local stations including Wool. Be careful: buses are not that frequent so check times first.

If its a nice day, the walk along the coast line from Durdle Door to Lulworth Cove is worth a visit. You can see the stunning views of the Dorset coast, then sit and take a breather before continuing. There are a good choice of shops and places to eat near Lulworth Cove, and for the more adventurous a chance to kayak among the coves as well. For the kayaking you need to book in advance but it’s well worth it.

Corfe Castle, Dorset

20180506_125941

One thing I love to do when taking photos of sites is to have pictures with no one in them. It gives the feel of a place feeling abandoned and still forgotten, especially in places such as Pompeii and Herculaneum. This can be a challenge, and requires a lot of patience in order to get the shot but for me the wait is completely worth it when you get what you’re waiting for.

At Corfe Castle the lack of people in images makes me think of the castle as it was after its destruction, still standing in pieces but even so beautiful and haunting.

Dating back to the 12th century, Corfe Castle was built for King Henry I, son of William the Conqueror. Its tower was 21m tall and the structure dominated the landscape it stood in. Later in the 17th century the castle was a notable feature in the English Civil War. Belonging to the Bankes family, who were supporters of King Charles ! and the Cavaliers. It stood firm and resilient during two sieges, until Lady Bankes was betrayed by one of her own men.

Later an Act of Parliament was passed which ordered the destruction of the castle. Gunpowder was used to bring the castle to the ground, leaving it in pieces. However ownership of the castle was later returned to the Bankes family who remained the owners until the castle was given to the National Trust in 1982.
