About this book

The Jurassic coast of devon and Dorset has joined the Grand Canyon and the Great barrier Reef as a World heritage site. It was the first natural landscape in Great Britain to win this highest of international accolades. It is described as Jurassic for its famous dinosaur-bearing strata but the visual geology extends either side of this period, across the mesozoic era from the triassic to the cretaceous. From Orcombe Point, Exmouth to Old Harry Rocks, Studland bay, this coast provides a walk in time through 180 million years in just 95 miles, plus fossils new to science which appear as it continues to erode.
