Man of War Bay encloses Man O’War Cove on the Dorset coast in southern England, between the headlands of Durdle Door to the west and Man O War Head to the east.
The UK Ordnance Survey maps at 1:50000 and 1:25000 scale do not mark a bay of this name in the area and therefore Man of War Bay may be a local name. The cove the bay encloses is called Man O’War Cove so the spelling “Man of War Bay” is doubtful. The Ordnance Survey maps mark a St Oswald’s Bay so this is the official name
The Dorset and East Devon Coast World Heritage Site is England’s first natural World Heritage Site – it is known as The Jurassic Coast. It covers 95 miles of truly stunning coastline from East Devon to Dorset, with rocks recording 185 million years of the Earth’s history.
World Heritage status was achieved because of the site’s unique insight into the Earth Sciences as it clearly depicts a geological ‘walk through time’ spanning the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods.
