This is the view that will surprise you, this hill is called Gold Hill and was used a few years ago in a well-known bread advert, for Hovis bread. It's a cobbled road and deceptively steep, the handrail is needed by alot of people as they climb up and down. the wonderful Blackmore Vale beyond the houses, stunning Dorset scenery.
Here's another view of the Blackmore Vale from Shaftesbury, the hill on the skyline is Bulbarrow Hill where I have taken pictures from in the past.
Today has been such a lovely spring day, the sunshine really coming through and the crops in the fields shooting up and turning into the emerald green we only see at this time of year. The birds are busy getting nests ready, skylarks singing and the rooks and crows seem to be everywhere. On the way home we stopped at Badbury Rings and just stayed there until it was nearly dark....too nice to go home!
