Town: Toller Porcorum is a village in West Dorset, situated in the Toller Valley, just over 10 miles north-west of Dorchester, and 8 miles north-east of Bridport, nestling in the valley of the River Hooke. Toller Porcorum is also situated within the West Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and is almost entirely agricultural. Within the village there is a Post Office with a small shop. The nearest pub is about 2.5 miles away at Maiden Newton, where other essential services can be found. There are two important nature reserves within the village boundaries, both belonging to the Dorset Wildlife Trust, Powerstock Common and Kingcombe Meadows with a vast selection of animals and birds as well as a huge variety of wild plants and insects. Bridport is home to an interesting variety of shops, restaurants and inns. Two miles south of Bridport is the dramatic Jurassic coast at West Bay, now a World Heritage Site, home to the backdrop for TV's Harbour Lights and the coastal setting for popular Broadchurch, whilst the picturesque resort of Lyme Regis is within 10 miles.
