Chesil Beach, Jurassic Coast, Dorset

[ Photo Gallery # 99 ]

Chesil Beach is one of the glories of England’s coastline. The name derives from the Old English ‘ceosel’ or ‘cisel’, meaning “gravel” or “shingle”.  It lies at the eastern end of what is known as the Jurassic Coast which stretches for many miles along the shores of Dorset and Devon on England’s southern coast.  My Gallery this week displays a number of photographs which  I took there 10 years ago.

  1. I know I’ve said it before Roland but you do great justice to the beauty of our kingdom with your photographs. I have many happy memories of satiating my thirst for history in Dorset whether hill forts, museums, Hardy, Tolpuddle martyrs or Bovington.. And I seem to recall a small hard round crisp-bread called Dorset Knobs ?
