Winspit and the Jurassic Coast
Winspit and the Jurassic Coast
Winspit was used until about 1940 as a stone quarry (producing high quality Purbeck stone for major buildings in London), then was the site of naval and air defences during WWII. Seacombe and Dancing Ledge are further along the coast and the rectangular caves created by quarrying for limestone can be made out. Anvil Point with its lighthouse is the promontory in the far distance.
