Bridport Gets Ready To Celebrate Its Rope Making History


8:55am 6th May 2014

The first ever event celebrating Bridport's rope and net industry is launching this weekend.

The Ropewalk Fair, supported by Wessex FM, is hoping to provide an insight into the local trade.

The town has a strong reputation for its rope and net trade, with factories producing products for Wembley and Wimbledon.

Events include a tour inside two of Bridport's netting factories, guided tours of the town and a family fair.

The family fair, held on Sunday, will feature maypole dancing and tug of war, as well as local music and food for visitors to enjoy.

Organisers are also encouraging visitors to bring their skipping ropes and help break a world record.
