    Here is a 'virtual' tour of this site to give you an idea of what to expect if you visit:

    Dancing Ledge is a rocky ledge on the Purbeck Jurassic coast

    It is not a natural feature having been made during stone quarrying activities here

    The remnants of the quarry are clearly visible

    the quarried stone was loaded on to barges from the ledge

    the exposed rock and thin soil covering lead to an interesting array of flora and fauna

    You can only approach on foot, the nearest car park is in Langton Matravers over a mile away

    Be prepared for a steep descent (and ascent after!) and wonderful; views
