Geocache Description:

West Lulworth

The 346th in a series of caches where a red telephone box
is in close proximity to a post box

West Lulworth is a small unassuming village located on the Purbeck coast. It has a fascinating history and is blessed with two spectacular natural beauty spots - Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door. These iconic landforms, shaped by erosion over millions of years, attract visitors from all over the world.

The village of West Lulworth has beautiful limestone cottages and a war memorial, dedicated to the men of the parish who lost their lives during the Great War, located in the heart of the village. From the late seventeenth to the mid nineteenth century, smugglers used Lulworth Cove and other bays and beaches nearby. The building of coastguard cottages, which housed the customs officers, still stand above the cove. Lulworth at one point had a mill, powered by water from a nearby spring. However, it was burnt down during the 19th century and all that now remains of its existence is the millpond.

West Lulworth even has the quintessential British red telephone box. Standing next to a postbox with a seat in between them, the Fine Pair occupy a small grass area on the junction of Main Road and Church Road.
