A CAR park at a popular Dorset beauty spot will reopen.

The Lulworth Estate announced today that the car park at Durdle Door will open as lockdown restrictions are slightly eased.

A spokesperson said: “With respect to the latest Government advice on Coronavirus we will be opening our car park at Durdle Door, allowing the public to once again visit our beautiful coastline. There is a signposted one-way walk-in operation to help maintain social distancing.

“The safety of Lulworth Estate staff and the public is our priority, we ask that you continue to respect the social distancing rules set out by the Government during this time.”

The spokesperson said that the car park at Lulworth Cove will remain closed “until further notice.”

Visitors have been asked not to drive their cars into Lulworth Cove and instead park at the Durdle Door car park.

The spokesperson added: “We will continue to revise these measures in accordance with government advice and safe working, we thank you for your understanding through this difficult time.”

As reported in the Daily Echo last month, around 40 cars turned up at Durdle Door during the weekend before Easter.

BCP Council has reopened all but one of its public car parks today, however, Dorset Council has said it will keep its car parks at visitor destinations closed during the early phase of the loosening of the lockdown.
