Where is Bridport?
Bridport's origins are Saxon. it became one of the four most important settlements in Dorset during the reign of King Alfred. – the other three being Dorchester, Wareham and Shaftesbury. – There was also the construction of fortifications and establishment of a Mint.
Since the Middle Ages, Bridport has been associated with the production of rope and nets with the raw materials needed for this being supplied from the surrounding countryside. Bridport's main street is especially wide as it was previously used to dry the ropes, after they had been spun in the long gardens behind the houses. Ropes for the gallows used to be made in the town, hence the phrase "stabbed with a Bridport dagger" being used to describe a hanging.
Bridport lies in the county of Dorset in South West England in the West Dorset district about 14 miles (23 km) west of Dorchester, 15.5 miles (25 km) SSW of Yeovil, 33 miles (53 km) east of Exeter and 1.5 miles (2.4 km) inland from the English Channel at West Bay.
