A Jurassic Coast walk is best started or completed at Orcombe Point’s Geoneedle, the officially designated western-most point of the World Heritage Site.

Orcombe Point is at the western end of the Jurassic Coast. The layers of red mudstone and sandstone that make up the cliffs here were laid down in a desert some 250 million years ago, at the start of a time period known as the Triassic. They formed not long after the most devastating mass extinction event known, when 95% of all species were wiped out.
