The Great Globe While exploring the Jurassic Coast, why not visit Durlston Country Park which is home to the restored Durlston Castle. Durlston Castle was originally used as a restaurant for George Burt, who commissioned the building, and was never actually intended to be a castle. It was designed by G.R. Crickmay and built by W.M. Hardy in 1886-87. The building now houses a restaurant, visitor centre, gallery and gift shop and is also a popular wedding venue with beautiful views out to sea. The Great Globe is one of the largest stone spheres in the world, weighing in at around 40 tonnes, and is situated on the grass lawn between the castle and the cliffs. The Globe was constructed from Portland Stone made up of 15 segments, with four stones for each of the lower three layers and three in the top layer. Each segment is connected by dowels made of granite. Since the Roman times quarrying has been part of the Purbeck and the surrounding Durlston area still bears evidence of this. Tilly Whim Caves for example were an area where Portland stone was quarried, but they were closed in the early 19th century as a result of falling demand. Durlston Bay rocks provide a record of the late Jurassic and early Cretaceous periods (140 to 130 million years ago) in Britain. Many fossils have been discovered here and there have been significant finds such as reptiles and mammals of this age. The fossils include crocodiles, lizards, turtles and flying reptiles along with dinosaur footprints. 87
