Home of the historic 14th century St Catherine’s Cathedral, and known for its swannery, abbey buildings, and subtropical gardens, Abbotsbury is a village and civil parish located close to the English Channel on the Jurassic Coast. A section of the parish’s coastline includes the beautiful Chesil Beach, an 18-mile pebble beach that acts as a barrier between the English coast and the saline lagoon.
