Kimmeridge

Trip Planner Europe  /  UK  /  England  /  Dorset  /  Kimmeridge
Kimmeridge is a small village and civil parish in the English county of Dorset. It is situated just over half a mile (1 km) inland on the Isle of Purbeck on the English Channel coast, south of Wareham and about west of Swanage. It lies within the Purbeck administrative district of the county, and in 2013 the estimated population of the civil parish was 90.On the coast south-west of the village lies the roughly semi-circular Kimmeridge Bay, which is backed by low cliffs of soft shale. Beneath the cliffs there is a large wave-cut platform (known as The Flats) and a rocky shore with rock pools and attendant ecology. Kimmeridge Bay is a surfer and diver area.Notable buildingsAlong the shore immediately eastwards of Kimmeridge Bay is a folly known as Clavell Tower which inspired P.D. James's novel The Black Tower. It had been in danger of falling down the eroding cliff, so recently the tower was dismantled and then reassembled further back from the cliff edge. The tower is available as a holiday let.The Royal National Lifeboat Institution stationed a lifeboat at Kimmeridge in 1868 but it was removed in 1896.
