Loders is a parish on the Asker river being 2 miles
north-east of Bridport. It is a linear village, sitting in a long valley
between Waddon Hill and Boarsbarrow Hill, following the road between
Bradpole and Askerswell, with another road parallel to the river Asker.
The village is made up of three areas, in the west is Uploders with its
own public house and chapel. To the west of Uploders is Yondover, where
the village playing field is located. Further westwards is Lower Loders which has a public house, the church, village hall and a school. Lower
Loders is now generally known as Loders.
