The Jurassic Coast is England's first natural World Heritage Site. Covering 95 miles of coastline from East Devon to Dorset, displaying 185 million years of the Earth's history.
World Heritage status was achieved because the Jurassic Coast provides a unique insight into Earth Sciences. It shows a geological ‘walk through time’ spanning the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods. World Heritage Sites are places of ‘outstanding universal value’ selected by UNESCO.
A new book that takes a quirky look at the Jurassic Coast has been published in time for Christmas – and it’s already proving to be a big hit. The Jurassic Coast – A Mighty Tale is published by The Jurassic Coast Trust and is written and illustrated by local artist Tim Britton.
