Cretaceous periods - a time capsule

The Dorset and East Devon Coast, also known as the Jurassic Coast (link is external) was the first

ever site to be inscribed as a 'natural' World Heritage Site. It spans 95 miles of sensational coastline all the way from East Devon to Dorset. What makes this coast so special is the way its cliff exposures provide an almost continuous geological 'walk through time' spanning the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods - a time capsule holding 185 million years of the Earth's history. Walk along the cliff-top paths to see some of England’s most spectacular geology including Durdle Door, the large limestone arch near Lulworth. Did you know? Scenes from the Oscar Wilde biopic Wilde, starring Stephen Fry and Jude Law, were shot here. Read more at https://www.visitbritain.com/gb/en/britains-natural-wonders#JyfZUQEG8gmOxVcd.99
