The impressive Old Harry Rocks

The Old Harry Rocks are one of the most famous landmarks on the South coast of England. They mark the most eastern point of the Jurassic Coast.

The cliffs and stacks are formed of chalk with some bands of flint which have been gradually eroded over the centuries. Some of the older stacks have fallen while new ones have been formed by the breaching of isthmuses.

Thousands of years ago, the Old Harry Rocks and The Needles were linked by a line of chalk hills that eroded away during the last ice age.

The Old Harry Rocks are situated at the southern end of Studland Bay in the county of Dorset.
