Dorset is world famous for its breathtaking coastline, a large stretch of which was awarded World Heritage status in 2001 and has become known as the “Jurassic Coast”. With its award-winning beaches, dramatic cliffs and unique landforms such as Durdle Door, it’s easy to see why most people think of the coast when they think of Dorset. However, there is much more to the county than its stunning coastline; inland, it boasts a beautiful and wonderfully varied landscape – rolling hills, hidden valleys, hillforts and heathland, along with quaint and quintessentially English villages. Outside of the urban conurbation of Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch, Dorset is mostly rural and, with no motorway running through the county, remains largely unspoilt.
In this stunning book with more than 140 evocative colour photographs, Mark Bauer has captured Dorset at its most romantic.
