About Old Harry Rocks

Marking the most easterly point of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, the Old Harry Rocks are at Handfast Point on the Isle of Purbeck. Formed by erosion, Old Harry is a chalk stack while the stump nearby is named Old Harry’s Wife, the remnants of a stack which collapsed in 1896.

The large outcrop of rock at the end of the cliffs is known locally as No Man’s Land. The South West Coast Path runs nearby and gives impressive views of these rock formations, which are constantly evolving as they are weathered by the sea and the elements.
