Walk Photo 188901

View East from White Nothe, near Ringstead

Caption - This view is from the White Nothe headland. In the foreground is the face of the Cretaceous Upper Chalk. The first slight dip in the coast is West Bottom, followed by the deep dip of Middle Bottom, both cut in the Ice Ages by rivers from the seasonal melting of the permafrost to the north. After that, Bats Head sticks out into the sea with its small arch. The next feature along the coast, tucked behind Bats Head, is Durdle Door - the top of the arch can just be seen.

Dorset is a beautiful county for walking with a varied landscape including chalk downs, limestone ridges, low-lying valleys and a glorious coastline. Predominantly rural in character the walking offers wonderful views and pretty villages. Much of the coast is part of the Jurassic Coast Natural World Heritage Site due to its geological significance, including Lulworth Cove, Chesil Beach and Durdle Door.
