Old Harry Rocks

The chalk formations are popularly know as Old Harry Rocks, but the name actually refers to the single stack of chalk standing furthest out to sea. Until 1896 there was another stack known as Old Harry’s Wife, but erosion caused her to tumble into the sea, leaving just a stump.

Thousands of years ago, Old Harry and The Needles on the Isle of Wight were linked by a line of chalk hills that eroded away during the last ice age.

They are part of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site and managed by the National Trust.

You can walk to Old Harry along the South West Coast Path.
