Durdle Door Arch

There are five types of rock exposed in these cliffs. Each formed underwater and later tilted as continents collided. The tough Portland Stone breached by sea, creating Durdle Door and the stacks which describe the coastline of 10,000 years ago.

Stair Hole

Stair Hole is sculpted from 3 rocks types. The sedimentary rocks formed underwater and later titled as continents collided. They have since been continually worn by the sea. The Portland Stone that faces the sea was breached by waves attacking. Small cracks are enlarged into caves that collapse to form arches and then disintegrate to leave behind stacks.
