As well as remnants of past quarrying activity, cliffs along the Purbeck shore – part of the World Heritage Jurassic Coastline – bear signs of nature’s work. The famous Old Harry Rocks are just one example; stunning views can be had of these from Ballard Down (National Trust). There’s no better destination on a sunny day than Studland Beach National Nature Reserve, which boasts four miles of fine, dune-backed shoreline stretching northwards towards the entrance of Poole Harbour. Inland, the Purbeck landscape consists of rolling chalk down and heathland. In this fragile and rare environment, several of the farms are owned by the National Trust and run along conservation lines. Purbeck Producers was formed to support local farmers and artisans who sell their goods at markets throughout the area.
