- DURDLE DOOR - Late afternoon low sun creating stunning scenes at Durdle Door, Dorset.

Many early documentary records exist concerning Durdle Door. It is believed it’s kept name dates back around 1000 years! In the late 18th century documentary evidence suggests the description of a magnificent arch at ‘Durdle Rock Door’. Some early 19th century maps referred to the arch as ‘Durdledoor’, ‘Durdle’ or ‘Dudde Door’. In 1811 the first Ordnance Survey land map was published covering the coastal area including the rock arch formation which was now referred to as ‘Dirdale Door’. Dirdale is derived from the Old English word ‘thirl’ - meaning to pierce, bore or drill. The door part of the name is likely to reference it’s overall arch shape.

In the late 19th century further historic evidence suggests the colloquial use of the term ‘Barn Door’ to describe the feature- referencing it’s significant size which could accommodate certain vessels sailing through it.

A famous scene on the British coast,  Durdle Door is a fabulous coastal landmark to visit and admire.

Looking over the bright roofs* of Spittal to the sea, shortly after a shower passed over. * fun fact - I always thought it was "rooves", but it turns out that spelling for the plural of roof is outdated, making me feel really, really old :(

On the way back from #harrogate we decided to leave the train & explore gorgeous @visitknaresborough! ❤️ Here we went to @mothershiptonscave, #ourladyofthecrag, @knaresboroughcastle & enjoyed a short stroll in the beautiful market place! 💜

Although the present lighthouse was built in 1840, there has been a lighthouse on the site since before 1663. The earlier lighthouse was built of wood with an iron basket of burning coals as a light. In 1776 Hunstanton Lighthouse had the world's first parabolic reflector installed; at the same time an oil lamp replaced the coal fire.

In 1840 a new lighthouse, designed by James Walker, was built by William Candler of Lynn; it was first lit on 3 September of that year. In place of the reflector a sizeable (second-order) fixed catadioptric optic was installed, designed by J. Cookson & co. of Newcastle-upon-Tyne. The lighthouse initially displayed a fixed white light with red sectors; it later displayed an occulting white light.

The present lighthouse ceased operations in 1922, since when it has been a private residence and a Holiday Let.

The famous red and white striped cliffs at Hunstanton in Norfolk, UK, are an eye-catching attraction. And during a visit to the cliffs you can have fun discovering the history and nature of the area by scrambling at the base of the cliffs for fossils, looking for creatures in the rock pools on the beach below, or taking a leisurely stroll to view the old buildings perched on the cliff top.

Why are the cliffs striped?

The stripes in the cliffs are caused by layers of different-coloured rock. The main layers are:

Carrstone. This is the brown layer and consists of sandstone - sand cemented together by iron oxide (rust). In places where the cement is stronger, the rock is darker and less crumbly. There are no fossils in this layer apart from a little fossilised wood.
Chalk. The red and white chalk is made of limestone. Limestone forms in warm tropical climates, which suggests that Hunstanton's climate was once warmer than it is today! The colour of the red chalk is due to iron staining.

When I was recently in the Lake District, my plans to run round Buttermere were scuppered by a road closure due to an accident. On the plus side I got to enjoy the glorious golden hour light running round Crummock Water instead.
