About the neighbourhood
Puncknowle is one of several villages located in the Bride Valley. The other villages are Litton Cheney, Swyre, Shipton Gorge, Chilcombe, Little Breedy and Long Breedy.

Today the river is more like a stream, but the depth of the valley is perhaps an indicator of its former size; The name of the river derives from a Celtic word meaning boiling or gushing. Relics of ancient civilisations abound in the valley and in the surrounding area.

The Jurassic Coast is a World Heritage Site that extends from from Orcombe Point near Exmouth in the west to Old Harry Rocks near Swanage in the east. Its entire length of 96 miles can be walked on the South West Coast Path. The site has been named...
