The Jurassic Coast [1] is the popular (and now official) name given to a 95 mile (155 km) long stretch of coastline in southern England, incorporating parts of the east Devon and Dorset coasts.

The Jurassic Coast was inscribed as a World Heritage site in 2001 [2] on account of its importance to geology, palaeontology and the sheer beauty of it's landscape. The area attracts hundreds of thousands of fossil hunters, hikers, campers and beach-goers each year.
