Bridport is a vibrant market town in Dorset. It is recognised as the Gateway Town for the World Heritage site of the Jurassic Coast. The town offers stunning natural beauty nearby in the form of West Bay. With the golden glow of the sandstone cliffs to the east and the shimmering Golden Cap to the west, the coastline lying just one and a half miles south offers naturally breathtaking scenery. The fossil-rich coast has attracted many dinosaur hunters, with the east cliff exposing 180 million years of history. Bridport is a small town nestled amongst the hills of West Dorset but one which grew into one of the most important towns in the realm. Bridport's origin is uncertain but it is believed to be a late Saxon town dating from the time of Alfred the Great (871-899). By the time of the Norman Conquest (1066) and the Domesday Survey (1086) the town, despite being the smallest town in Dorset was firmly established. It is from the time of King John (1199 - 1216) that Bridport became a unique town in its own right. It is from this period that the town's fame, fortune and prosperity were to be built on rope making and later net making.
