Sedimentary rock from Jurassic Period
The site is a stretch of land made up of sedimentary rock from the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods – the time of dinosaurs.
In keeping with the site topography, the lodges will be constructed from a combination of pre-patinated copper and Portland stone from a nearby quarry.
Three split-level residences will be bracketed by two single story residences. Each will have two bedrooms, open-plan living and dining area that opens onto patios overlooking the English Channel.
And stipulated by the English Heritage is the requirement to be separated by rugged Portland stone walls to ‘bed’ the development into the rocky setting.
The project is expected to complete in March 2017. It is hoped the £2 million development will help to boost tourism throughout the year.
