On the Jurassic Coast

Dungy Head Sunset
Dungy Head Sunset – the view west from Dungy Head on the Jurassic Coast of Dorset

I had an amazing walk on Friday when I followed a route that took in some of the best of the Jurassic Coast of Dorset, walking the inland path west of Lulworth and returning via the Dorset Coast Path. The day was really windy but beautifully sunny, and as I neared the end, I was treated to this lovely sunset. I had already walked the switchback of headlands that you see in this picture, and I had just climbed up to the top of Dungy Head – in fact I was actually walking away from the view when I realised the sky was lighting up so I retraced my steps to reach this point again.

In the picture you can see St Oswald’s Bay and Man o’ War Bay before the first headland which is Durdle Door. This is followed by the high chalk headland of Swyre Head, then Bat’s Head, and finally the distinctive nose shaped White Nothe. What a fantastic way to end the day!

I have actually posted this view before, a year or two ago, and its interesting to compare the two – there is a link here.

I know I haven’t yet finished blogging my Dorset and Devon Coast Path backpack yet but I wanted to share this view with you. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do because its one of the best views around.

Thanks for stopping by.

Until next time,
