Below are a few links specifically for the whole of the Jurassic Coast section of the SW Coast Path.
The 'must have' book for this walk is the Official Guide to the Jurassic Coast which explains in clear, simple and well-illustrated terms the geological history of this facinating area. It is available in local bookshops and can be purchased online - we would recommend reading it before starting on the walk so that you are able to understand more clearly the countryside you are walking through.
Linked to the guide the Jurassic Coast website provides comprehensive information about the area including updated details of events, such as fossil walks, happening along the coast.
Finally advance forward planning is essential for the Military Ranges between Kimmeridge and Lulworth - if they are closed the alternative walk means a major detour. Find out the opening times by clicking on the link for the relevant year here
