Bridport, Dorset, lies 15 miles west of Dorchester on the A35. With a population of around 7000, Bridport was an important rope making centre for use on sailing ships. The town’s wide pavements were ropewalks, used for twisting and drying the new ropes. The industry continues to make fishing nets and specialist ropes.
