Burton Bradstock is a village and civil parish in West Dorset, England, situated approximately 2.5mi southeast of Bridport and 0.5mi inland from the English Channel at Chesil Beach. In the 2011 census the parish had a population of 948.Burton Bradstock village lies in the Bride Valley, close to the mouth of the small River Bride. It comprises 16th- and 17th-century thatched cottages, a parish church (dedicated to St Mary the Virgin), two pubs, a primary school, shop, post office stores, beach café, hotel, garage, village hall, reading room and library. The church dates largely from the late 14th or early 15th century, though it was significantly restored in 1897.The name Burton Bradstock derives from 'Brideton' and 'Bradenstock', the latter referring to the Wiltshire abbey which once owned the village. In the Domesday Book of 1086 it was recorded as 'Bridetone' and had 28.7 households; the lord of the manor was the Abbey of Saint-Wandrille.Burton Bradstock lies on Dorset's Jurassic Coast, which in the vicinity of the village comprises vertical cliffs up to high. Near the top of these cliffs is a layer of Inferior Oolite, which contains large ammonites. Rockfalls result in these being accessible to fossil hunters on the beach beneath. At Hive Beach there is a gap in the cliffs; the National Trust own the land here, and provide a car park. There is a yearly Spring Tide Festival on the beach.Arrange all the small, but important details of your Burton Bradstock trip itinerary using our United Kingdom (UK) trip generator.
