The Isle of Purbeck, not a true island but a peninsula, is in the county of Dorset, England. It is bordered by the English Channel to the south and east, where steep cliffs fall to the sea; and by the marshy lands of the River Frome and Poole Harbour to the north. Its western boundary is less well defined, with some medieval sources placing it at Flower’s Barrow above Worbarrow Bay. The most southerly point is St Alban’s Head (archaically St. Aldhelm’s Head). It is suffering erosion problems along the coast.
