Travelling westwards beyond Yondover is Lower Loders, the change being close to where the old Maiden Newton to Bridport branch line crosses the village road. Lower Loders, most notably has a public house, "The Loders Arms", a church, a village hall, several farms, and a primary school.
Lower Loders is now generally referred to simply as Loders.
Loders used to have a railway line. This passed through the village but there was never a station. The railway line has been in disuse for many years, since the closing of the Bridport to Maiden Newton branch line in 1975. However some features are still visible, most prominently, there are two bridges, one of which must be passed under to get from one end of the village to the other.
For its small size, it is a relatively popular location for holiday-home owners.
Loders is mentioned in the Domesday Book as Lodres.
