December Calendar Day 23: Inspiration & Reveal


Bridport is a market town in the west of Dorset. West Bay, a small fishing harbour also known as Bridport Harbour, lies within the town’s boundary.

During the reign of King Alfred, Bridport became one of the four most important settlements in Dorset. Unlike many of the old Dorset towns it didn’t increase much in popularity during the 19th century. Its popularity has grown in recent years. It is now known for its art, culture and media as well as local events.
