Hooke is a small village and civil parish in the county of Dorset in southern England, situated about northeast of the town of Bridport. It is sited in the valley of the short River Hooke, a tributary of the River Frome, amongst the chalk hills of the Dorset Downs. In the 2001 Census the village had a population of 118. Rampisham Down, the hill immediately northeast of the village, is the site of a transmitter station operated by VT Communications, broadcasting long-range radio signals for clients including BBC World Service. The outskirts of the village are home to Hooke Court and its surrounding parklands. To the southwest, the dry valley of Burnt Bottom leads up to the summit of Warren Hill and the woods of Hooke Park on its western flanks.
