River Asker

River Asker

The River Asker is a small river in West Dorset, England. It rises on the banks of Eggardon Hill, near Askerswell, to which it gives its name. It then flows down the Asker Valley, passing near to Yondover, and then Uploders, where many cottages have gardens backing out onto the river. It flows by the playing fields in Uploders, and then passes underneath the road, around 10 metres from an old railway bridge. The River Asker then continues just south of the village of Loders, before reaching Bradpole, where it flows underneath another old bridge, before curving around and going through the Happy Island section, beside the A3066 road and the supermarket Morrisons. It enters Bridport immediately after passing underneath the A3066, and eventually joins up with the River Brit beside Palmers Brewery in the southwest of the town.
