The Book of Lulworth: A Celebration of Dorsets Cove Villages (Hardback)Rodney Legg (author)
Hardback Published: 30/11/2002
- Not available
Sandwiched between two gems of landform geology, the rock-arch at Durdle Door and the Fossil Forest on a ledge above the English Channel, Lulworth Cove is the most famous beauty spot on the South Coast of England. Bindon Abbey was established here before being moved inland to Wool and the area has attracted poets and artists, kings and princes for centuries. Napoleon, despite a local legend, almost certainly did not visit Lulworth Cove to reconnoitre the practicalities of invasion, but French exiles aplenty certainly stayed here, including deposed King Charles X and a community of Trappist monks, who left their graves and name at Monastery Farm. 297x210mm, 160 page hardback, and over 200 historic photographs, maps and illustrations.
Dimensions: 297 x 210 mm
