On Chesil Beach, nature is king, and not the soft existence of living things, but the primal, hard forces that, given enough time, grind continents to dust and carve out the very fabric of our planet’s surface.....

A short walk west along Monmouth Beach at low tide will bring you to a number of limestone ledges, washed clear by the sea. On the surface of one of them are hundreds of large fossilised ammonites - the Ammonite Graveyard.

Joined only to the mainland by a thin strip at the southern end of the sweeping arc of Chesil Beach, the Isle of Portland is the Jurassic Coast’s most southerly point. Its isolated location and beautiful scenery make it a real explorer’s island
