Old Harry Rocks, Dorset, Jurassic Coast

The Old Harry Rocks in Dorset.

Old Harry Rocks are located at Handfast Point on the Isle of Purbeck(not an actual isle, but a peninsula) in Dorset and mark the eastern end of the Jurassic Coast. The Rocks are stack formations of chalk rock carved by the sea.

Boating and canoeing around the rocks is a popular activity. Good views of the Old Harry Rocks can also be seen from the Dorset section of the South West Coastal Path.
