“Home to all those who have chosen to live here”
The Bradpole Community covers the villages of Bradpole and Pymore (East) as well as the Eastern section of the Civil Parish in and around the King Charles Estate. Apart from these residential areas the Parish also encompasses the Gore Cross Business Park, the Pymore Light Industrial Estate and, of course, a section of the beautiful Dorset countryside.
The population of Bradpole in the 2011 Census was 2339. This compares with 2270 in the 2001 Census reported in the Bradpole Parish Plan. A rise of just 69 (3%) in this 10-year period.
Bradpole old village was designated as a conservation area in 1993. A Conservation Area Appraisal covering Bradpole, Bothenhampton & Walditch was undertaken and adopted in 2007 and can be found here:
Bradpole Village Hall has been at the centre of the village community since the late 19thC.
The Parish is traversed by the Monarch’s Way Long Distance Footpath from the monumental stone at Lee Lane across the Asker River valley and over Watton Hill to Pymore http://www.monarchsway.50megs.com/index.html
