Dancing Ledge

Dancing Ledge

Dancing Ledge is a tidal rock pool, set into the cliffs at a disused quarry site on the wild Jurassic Coast.

Around a hundred years ago, Victorian quarrymen blasted a small area of the limestone cliff at the base of the rocks to create a bathing pool for local children.

This hidden spot can only be reached by foot so we left the car at nearby Durnford Drove and followed the path across the fields and towards the sea.

We reached the end of the path and scrambled down the last of the rocks to the clear still pool below.

I love the contrast of the craggy fossil-studded rock against the deep blue sea. It's so peaceful here, the only sound comes from the waves lapping gently against the pool's edge.
