Quintessentially English, Bridport and its
surroundings were used as settings for the TV
series ‘River Cottage’ whilst nearby is a
small fishing harbour, location of the BBC
drama ‘Harbour Lights’.
The ancient town centre – two miles from the coast - lies on the River Brit and is still a centre for rope, nets and ale making. Thomas Hardy re-named it ‘Port Bredy’ in his novels.
