  The Influence of the Sea  

The sea has always influenced the coast and its use. It moulds the coast through erosion, but surprisingly little Dorset land has been lost by erosion. The sea’s presence affects the suitability of sites for occupation and development. Marine commerce and trade have been important throughout this coast’s history.
