SY8080 : Man o'War Cove

taken 4 years ago, near to West Lulworth, Dorset, Great Britain

Man o'War Cove
Man o'War Cove
Looking east from the ridge that connects Durdle Door to the land. The line of offshore rock is the Man o' War, and is the remains of the hard Portland Stone that originally protected this stretch of coast from the sea. The rampart was breached and the softer rocks between the Portland Stone and the chalk cliffs has been removed, though some ribs of Purbeck Beds are visible underwater. Beyond the cove is St Oswald's Bay and the headland at the far end is Dungy Head.
