Corfe Castle from Kingston

While you avoid Winton, Pokesdown and Castle Lane roadworks.
Oh and I just drove along Throop Road thinking I'd miss out Castle Lane and two cars overtook me ON A CORNER because apparently I was taking too lang avoiding a transit and a ruddy great truck coming the other way. I'll go through the roadworks next time, at least I'd have witnesses to any 'donkeys bottoms' shenanigans.
Is that sign actually there, pointing to Durdle Door? Surely if you're that close you'd see it?

I think the sign points to the path leading down to the beach.

Where else do you think that sign is then? The Echo staff struggle with basic grammar so I doubt they'd have the skill to PhotoShop it into the picture ;)

The sign is a pointer to steps down to the Door. Back in my childhood it was just a slippery path.
