The Parish of Loders
Loders Parish is a thriving rural community that covers the villages of Loders and Uploders. It is an attractive historic settlement set in beautiful unspoilt countryside in West Dorset, situated two miles north east of the market town of Bridport and 13 miles from Dorchester
The villages lie in the folds of the surrounding Powerstock Hills and have developed along the waterline of the River Asker, a small affluent of the River Brit. A single lane village road runs along the valley connecting the villages of Bradpole in the west and Askerswell in the east.
The villages are well served by a thriving primary school, Parish Church of St Magdalene, a late Georgian Methodist Chapel, two pubs and a modern village hall which hosts many events and activities throughout the year.
