Affpuddle is a small village and civil parish in the Purbeck district of Dorset in South West England; situated 11 miles east of Dorchester. The local travel links are located 3 miles from the village to Moreton railway station and 20 miles to Bournemouth International Airport. Also, the main road running through the village is the B3390. The village has a population of 402 according to the 2001 Census.

The village is in the Piddle valley and is just north of the Purbeck conifer plantations and heathland, and is situated in a valley beside the villages of Tolpuddle and Puddletown. The village is linear and made of brick, stone and thatched cottages and has a 13th century church dedicated to St Laurence.

The village was established during or before the Saxon era, and was mentioned in the Domesday Book as Affapidela, having a manor house belonging to the Abbot of Cerne. After the Dissolution the village became an estate of the Lawrence family, an ancestor of whom married the heiress of a branch of the Washington family, from another branch of which descended George Washington. The Washington arms were quartered by the Lawrences and thus appear on the north wall of the chancel in the village church on a Lawrence monument. The church is noted for its elaborate pews, dated 1545 or 1547, and the finely carved pulpit, undated but in a very similar style.

The village later belonged to the Framptons of Moreton, noted for their involvement with the Tolpuddle Martyrs.
