Portland Bill
Portland Bill
The rocky shelves north of Pulpit Rock on the west side of Portland Bill are part of the cherty series which is the lower part of the Portland Stone. Some of the beds are very rich in fossils. The fence in the background is to keep people from entering the Ministry of Defence land further north.
