December Calendar Day 12: Inspiration & Reveal

White Nothe

White Nothe, which means “White Nose” is part of the Jurassic Coast just east of Weymouth. Along with much of the coast in this area, the cliffs and beaches are well known for finding fossils. Part of the area is owned by the National Trust. There is a zigzag path up the cliff, believed to be a smuggler’s path. It is at the top of this path that there is a protruding rock in the shape of a nose which is how the area got its name.

At the top of White Nothe there is a World War II Pillbox, with a Royal Observer Corps post build on top. There is also a row of former coastguards’ cottages.
