Old Harry Rock

Old Harry Rock is a chalk stack which is part of Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site. Yes, as the place implies this is a 95 miles stretch of a coast where well preserved dinosaurs and their footprints were found. This mountain rock is estimated to be formed around 65 million years ago and the bigger part or chunk of it has broke away from the cliff. The ever changing feature of these stacks are mainly due to continuous erosion. The name Old Harry is synonymous to the devil who, as legend has it, laid down next to the cliff top.

It is a long walk to reach the top of the cliff but it is undoubtedly spectacular. It took my breath away.

  9. Hey nice to have shot that seperated part before it gets completely eroded! Very interesting to hear about the age of the mountain rock and the well preserved foot prints and remains!
