Bridport Harbour (West Bay) Live – one of Britain’s most popular spots
Here’s information about this fantastic location:
Although Bridport Harbour is the Official name of this place it is known to everyone in the South West as West Bay. Not to be confused with the West Bay lying just to the West of Portland Bill.
It is a very popular holiday resort on the coast and day trippers abound during summer weekends. The harbour originally built for trade and ship building. Its development not linked primarily to the fishing industry so it has not suffered the decline that other larger ports have.
Bridport as seen today is the result of quite a few rebuilds and extensions. The original medieval harbour is further inland and closer to Bridport itself. The latest addition is the West Wall built in 2005 which is designed to protect the harbour from the prevailing South Westerlies and the town from flooding.
The harbour consists of an inner l-shaped drying basin and an outer harbour with a large ship and mooring pontoons laid out during the summer. Around the harbour there is a multitude of fast food outlets with open air seating
This is a great live stream. Spend a little time taking a look. Soak up the atmosphere especially when the weather is good.
Great beach. Fantastic view of the ocean. Good to see so many boats in harbour although at weekends they are out at sea.
