Pulpit Rock is a standout feature at the southern tip of Portland Bill. The rock is a relic of the Isle of Portland’s past as a quarry, the coastal feature was formed in the 1870s when a natural arch was cut away by quarrymen.
The rock was given its name as the structure represents a bible leaning on a pulpit. The Rock has become a popular attraction in Portland and is just a short distance from Portland Bill Lighthouse and other relics of the Isle’s quarrying past. Look out for the Steel Crane on the cliffs as you explore the Isle.
