A round-up of assorted fascinating features around a limestone headland where the chalk grasslands are rich in wildflowers, attracting many butterflies, including the rare Lulworth skipper. The angular caves and tunnels in the vertical cliffs are home to the equally rare greater horseshoe bat, as well as doubling as distant planets in various sci-fi films, while the plateau high above them was the secret location of vital developments made in wartime radar technology.
