The little seaside town of West Bay near Bridport
was used as the location for the 2013 television drama ‘Broadchurch’. The beach with the sandstone cliffs
shown here, together with much of the local scenery including the harbour,
and the pier,
featured in the series. The South West Coastal Path
follows the cliff top
with outstanding views of the town and the Jurassic coastline of Dorset.
The beach is also the starting point of the famous 29 km Chesil Beach
that continues on to Portland in the east.
