The Man o' War
The Man o' War
The name is applied to the semi-submerged barrier of rock that shelters the cove. The rocks are hard, relatively erosion-resistant Portland Stone, though it has not been hard enough to prevent the sea breaching it and scooping out the cove. This is taken from the path leading down to the beach from the ridge connecting Durdle Door, another Portland Stone feature, to the land. At the foot of the path some ribs of Purbeck Beds are visible inside the rampart, running along the sea bed until they outcrop again at Dungy Head, at the far end of St Oswald's Bay.
