About this spot
St Aldhelm's Head is a limestone headland this dramatic cliff top gives a 360 degree views along the rocky Purbeck Jurassic coast. The chalk grasslands are rich in wild flowers that attract many butterfly species including the rare Lulworth Skipper. It was a secret location for the development of wartime radar technology and indeed there is a sculptor of two radar dishes on the headland as well as a national coast watch institution lookout station that is open to visitors. The St Aldhelm's Chapel is also situated here.
