Fossil Forest (near Lulworth Cove) - access closed due to cliff fall

Update: September 2017: Thanks to support from the Coastal Communities Fund plans are in place to rebuild the steps to be able to reopen the path down to the fossil forest by Spring / early summer 2018.

October 29th 2015: A substantial cliff fall has damaged the steps leading down from the Coast Path onto the rock shelf area containing the Fossil Forest. As a result access down to the fossilised trees is currently closed, although some of the trees can still be viewed from the Coast Path along the cliff top. The Coast Path is unaffected and you can still walk this section.
