The remarkable geology and landforms of the Isle of Purbeck at the eastern end of England's only natural World Heritage Site.

The Isle of Purbeck on the Dorset and East Devon Coast World Heritage Site is a unique place where geology and landforms combine to create beautiful and varied coastal scenery. Headlands and bays, sea stacks and arches, secluded coves and dramatic cliffs are here in abundance.

This book guides the reader along the coast and explains the processes which, over a period of 160 million years, have produced an area that is both scientifically important and aesthetically beautiful.

The guide retails at £9.95 and is available from Tourist Information Centres, museums, visitor attractions, and all good local and national bookshops or from online retailers. To find your local book shop go to
