Stair Hole is a small cove that is to the west of Lulworth Cove in Dorset, southern England. In a few tens of thousand of years it may grow to be as large as nearby Lulworth Cove. The folded limestone strata known as the Lulworth crumple are particularly visible at Stair Hole. There are several caves visible from the seaward side of Stair Hole; Cathedral Cavern is supported by pillars of rock rising out of the water. It was created by an earthquake which pushed the rocks upwards creating the slanting effect.
