During the ferocious gales of this last winter, the shoreline around the UK has changed irrevocably. Dorset is no exception; the Jurassic coast has suffered along with the rest of the country.
As yet I’ve not had the chance to check out how much it’s changed, but hopefully with the advent of spring (hooray) I’ll be getting out and about soon to find out. In some areas of course it’s dangerous to get too close for fear of further landslips. Here are a few photos of some scenes as they were before the winter.
There have been cliff falls at Burton Bradstock, and at West Bay and Charmouth.
It’s not just the coast which has suffered of course. Many people were flooded out of their homes inland too, and remain so. Farmers have lost their crops and the ability to feed their animals, so it’s been a hard winter for many people although not cold. Let’s hope these unfortunate folk will have a brighter year ahead now.
