Crossways is a hamlet in Dorset lying within the West Dorset administrative district. It is 6 miles east of the county town Dorchester with a population of approximately 3,300.

In the early 1930s the Air Ministry acquired local heath and farmland to build an airfield which was in 1937 and known briefly as RAF Woodsford, although it was renamed RAF Warmwell a year later. RAF Warmwell played an important part in World War II, being a major fighter base during the Battle of Britain, and offering fighter protection for Portland Naval Base and other important south coast areas.

Much of the present village of Crossways is built on the eastern part of the former airfield site and the village has been used for filming on many occasions.
