Ware Cliffs

Ware Cliffs are a set of long cliffs which stretch towards the town of Lyme Regis in Dorset to the Ware hamlet in the East Devon district of Devon, England. The cliffs are situated near Pinhay Bay, on the Devon-Dorset border. The highest point on Ware Cliffs is the Black Ven, which reaches a height of approximately 137 metres (449 ft).

The cliffs date to the early Jurassic period around 199-189 million years ago and many fossils have been found along the beaches.[1]
