**Cliff Falls - Take Care!**
Recent heavy rainfall has made the cliffs along the Dorset coast far more unstable than normal. When visiting one of our beaches, please keep away from the base of the cliffs and take heed of any warning signs - they are there for your safety. Please visit our Beach Safety page for more information.
