Burton Bradstock is a village in south west Dorset which is situated on Chesil Beach about 5km for Bridport. The population of the village in 2001 was 979. The village nestles around the church of St Mary the Virgin with 16th and 17th century thatched cottages along side. The main part of the church is 15th century although one part dates back a further 100 years. In Saxon times the village was called Brideton, which meant The Village of the River Brode. It was recorded in the Domesday Book

The village was engaged in smuggling back in time as were all the villages along this coast. This unspoilt village has a primary school, Post Office Stores, beach cafe, two pubs, a hotel, garage and library. Burton Bradstock is famous for its position within the Jurassic Coast
