VILLAGE SETTING & DEVELOPMENT
3.
Sutton Poyntz is set in a secluded valley beneath the dramatic south Dorset chalk escarpment, within the Dorset AONB. The valley has an east-west axis and is drained by the River Jordan and its tributaries which break through the Preston Gap between Rimbury and Winslow hills on its south side. The contour map clearly shows the shape of the valley and the river system which flows through it before turning due south towards the sea at Bowleaze Cove.
