Chapmans Pool in Dorset on the Jurassic Coast is worth the walk. It can be approached via the village of Worth Matravers. It is a natural amphitheatre of interest especially for people who study rocks and fossils. Tall crumbling cliffs surround the bay leading to many boulders of various types tumbling to the shore. Fossils are common but frequently crushed within the matrix. Some energy must be expended to get down to the beach and get back up again to the nearest car park. There is a good path, with steps for the steepest part, leading to the boathouses and safe beach access at that point.
