"They persuaded me to keep on, and at last stranded me on the pebbles, exactly opposite the magnificent arch of Durdle-rock Door. Here I stood and contemplated with astonishment and pleasure this stupendous piece of Nature's work". Quote from the Irish witer and playwright, John O'Keefe (1792).
The name "Durdle" comes from the Old English "thirl" meaning "to pierce".
