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.
The Jurassic Coast Trust have teamed up with Furleigh Estate in Salwayash in recognition of their close links to the coast. The award-winning winery will donate 10p from every bottle sold of their “Tyrannosaurus Red” towards the Trust’s education and conservation projects.
With the Jurassic Coast filling with visitors for the busy summer season, new deckchairs, windbreaks and beach shelters are appearing on the beach near the Hive Beach Café, Burton Bradstock in West Dorset.
This two hour session starts up at the Centre with a 20 minute talk from the Centre Warden about the rocks and fossils of Charmouth and how to find fossils on the beach. The group then heads out onto the beach with the wardens and spend the rest of the session looking for fossils.
