Burton Bradstock

Just a few miles to the east of Bridport lies the pretty village of Burton Bradstock. Once a tightly knit community of farmers, fishermen, net makers and flax spinners the village has retained much of its character and offers a glimpse into a bygone age.

In the late 1880s a local businessman, Richard Roberts, built up a worldwide Trade in flax and hemp-based products, a leaflet entitled 'The Roberts' Trail' is available from the village Post Office and shows sites of interest around the village.

Burton Bradstock beach is a shelving shingle beach close to the village. On a clear day it offers stunning views to Portland and round to the East Devon coast.
Bathing can be dangerous as the beach shelves steeply and there is a strong undertow.
