The Dorset coast has a great variety of geographical features, formed as a result of the erosion of the succession of east to west running outcrops of sedimentary rock. Hard limestone ridges, folded chalk hills, stone storm beaches and areas of soft clays have allowed the sea to both erode and deposit material all along the coast. Classical and spectacular coastal features such as Lulworth Cove, Chesil beach and Poole Harbour are included within this section.
