Durdle Door is a famous limestone arch which is located in the Jurassic coast of England and is considered a photographic vintage. The name Durdle is derived from the Old English ‘thirl’ meaning bore or drill. Although Durdle Door is open to public but it is a privately owned property by an English family who own 12,000 acres in Dorset known as Lulworth Estate.
The form of the coastline around Durdle Door in Jurassic Coast of England is controlled by its geology—both by the contrasting hardness of the rocks, and by the local patterns of faults and folds. The rock strata are almost vertical, and the bands of rock are quite narrow.
