Dorset: "Come With Me to Bridport", 1951 Film; Bridport and West bay

A film from 1951

"Richard Dimbleby props up a bar in Bridport and conducts some leisurely interviews with locals over a pint and a cigarette. He also visits tradesmen and craftspeople in surrounding villages, from sand merchant Mr Good, who uses shire horses to collect shingle from Chesil Bank, to Mrs Legge, a netmaker, known as a 'braider'. As well as the appealing rural charm, there are plenty of unusual industrial processes on show".
