Due to Covid-19, we will sadly not be opening our doors to school groups in the 2020 Autumn Term. Drop us an email to be alerted when we are able to take bookings for Spring and Summer Terms 2021!

After a short introduction and film show, the Warden will lead the group out onto the beach and along the coast stopping at certain points to discuss how the local cliffs and coastline have formed.

The walk will cover the local geology, the landslide systems of West Dorset, an analysis of the composition of the beach and local conservation policy.
