About Dreadnought Trading Estate, Bridport, Dorset

An industrial estate for over 40 years in the heart of Bridport, Dorset

Who are we?

At Dreadnought Trading Estate we specialise in the letting of our own commercial and industrial units to a diverse group of businesses. As a family owned company we take pride in the running of the estate and all our tenants can be assured of a friendly and responsive service.

The first parcel of land was purchased in 1969 with a number of existing old buildings and then the estate expanded through the acquisition of land in the 1970s and early 80s. Most of the old buildings were demolished and replaced with new.

The estate has evolved since then and we continue to be flexible to accommodate the changing needs of the business as it grows. A testimony of our success is having many loyal long-standing tenants from a diverse range of industries, including accountants, solicitors, precision engineering, vehicle maintenance, plumbing and heating engineers, fishmongers, kitchen suppliers and window, door and conservatory suppliers to name but a few.


Where are we?

Dreadnought Trading Estate is within walking distance of the town of Bridport with Axminster, Weymouth and Dorchester in close proximity and West Bay beach only a 5 minute drive away.

Bridport is a vibrant market town with over 1000 listed properties set in the heart of beautiful West Dorset. It has a rich, rope-making heritage and a tremendous reputation for arts, culture and food.

For a quality of life away from the rat race, Bridport has plenty to offer a relocating business.
