Walditch is a small village in the English county of Dorset, situated in the civil parish of Bothenhampton in the West Dorset administrative district, about 1 kilometre (0.62 mi) to the east of the town of Bridport. The name Walditch is derived from an older term Waldyke, which alludes to the village's location: Walditch is located in the valley of a curved hill that encompasses the village; the hill has a dry stone wall still partially in place, which continues over towards Bothenhampton.
Walditch is composed of Old Walditch (the original Walditch) and lower Walditch, a housing estate built around 1998.
The village no longer has a stated member of clergy; the last person to fill this role being the Rev. Maureen Alchin, who was a local figure.
Walditch formerly lay within the Hundred of Godderthorne.
