Kimmeridge Bay

Kimmeridge Bay is a beach of grey rocks and wave-cut platforms backed by unstable cliffs of Kimmeridge Clay. A rock platform known as Washing Ledge extends about 100 yards out into the bay (as can be seen in the photo). The car park on grass is behind the beach and accessed along a toll road from Kimmeridge village. Beach access is a short path with steps, or down a slipway at the eastern end.

Kimmeridge lies just outside of the Tyneham MoD ranges, but a warning sign is located on the shore towards the western end, and a red flag is flown from the clifftop when the ranges are in use. The folly of Clavell Tower tops the headland of Hen Cliff at the eastern end of the bay.
