Bridport Things to Do

    Sooner or later you'll end up by the seaside, gazing at all the upright lumps of wood stuck mainly in the sand. You'll wonder where they came from and, the reason for their being was a tin mining boom in the latter half of the 19th century.
    Sadly, it only lasted a couple of decades then went into decline before timber getting sprung up but, it too has declined and all we have today is the remnant wharf of more industrial times.
    Makes for a nice photo opportunity though!

    Town facilities include supermarkets, hotel, chemist, baker, butcher, clothing store, golf courses, lawn bowls, sailing club, doctor's surgery, visitor's information centre, caravan park and several levels of accommodation from backpackers, bed and breakfast, to holiday resort.
    Oddly, streets in the northern half of Bridport have male person names and those in the southern half have female names.
    Commercial fishing still operates from Bridport as well as sporting fishing from the rocks or small boats.

    Fishing is definitely something that happens here
