Chesil Beach is located on the South coast of England in the county of Dorset. It is a pebble beach 18 miles long and stretches north-west from Portland to West Bay. For much of its length it is separated from the mainland by an area of saline water called the Fleet Lagoon.

Chesil Beach

A storm beach developed by gravel ridges being driven onshore. Note the lagoon between the storm beach and the low hills of the former coast. Storm waves throw the stones, rounded by constant impact, inland. Wind moves fine material in the same direction but human feet flatten the beach top.

The Isle of Portland viewed from Abbotsbury, looking east along the Chesil Bank, Dorset. One of my favourite views ever!

Portland, Dorset

a little trip to the seaside!

Last week Jazz and I enjoyed a lovely week away in Portland, Dorset, with family and friends. We spent a lot of our time climbing up the rocky hill, which was a stone's throw from our backyard, to admire beautiful views of Chesil Beach's coastline. Although it rained sometimes with occasional fog and strong winds, it didn't dampen our mood at all. When the sun came back out, which was often, Jazz was able to have paddles in the sea with her cousins. For me the slopes were a little too steep…

In Portland, Dorset, a rock stack off the coast, known locally as Pom Pom rock, has been washed away. Local historian Stuart Morris, who photographed the rock before and after its collapse, said: "You are talking about a natural stack that was hundreds of tonnes, totally demolished and broken to pieces by the storm."

UK storms: Before and after

Stormy weather has wreaked havoc in many places across the country. A combination of high winds, rain and strong waves have battered the coastline and also caused flooding further inland.
