Do you remember this stunning display at one of Dorset's most iconic landmarks?

Eight years ago, in October 2015, Durdle Door was centre stage for one of the most beautiful art installations the county has seen.

Durdle Door was one of ten UNESCO World Heritage sites across the UK and Ireland illuminated on the Night of Heritage Light.

Thousands descended on the iconic Jurassic Coast landmark as it lit up for one night only.

More than 3,000 people packed in and around the Purbeck beauty spot.

Bournemouth-based designers from Michael Grubb Studio used a man rowing in a boat under the Jurassic Coast landmark, accompanied with the use of various lighting tricks, in a bid to create a scene reminiscent of an impressionist art painting.

Photographers were scattered around the attraction, eagerly trying to find the perfect shot.
And after the sun had set, a red beam was projected onto the rocks from a nearby boat before a canoeist paddled beneath the arch.

Starting with William the Conqueror’s Tower of London, the Night of Heritage Light worked its way around the British Isles as attraction after attraction underwent the light-based makeovers.

Rick Squibb, who travelled from Christchurch to the Durdle Door event, said at the time: “It’s certainly different and it looks nice.

“I’ve never seen so many people here.”
