Without a doubt, one of the most photographed places in England!
We stopped off here, on Friday, instead of taking our usual route to Chipping Sodbury.
And in this little shop at the top of Gold Hill...
we bought this print...
Shaftesbury ...a lovely town in which to sit and watch the world go by!
Here's the clip of the 1973 Hovis advert:
But of course, there's also the famous Ronnie Barker sketch, where he takes an eternity to push his bike up the hill.
Huffing , puffing, panting and sweating, he utters words similar to these :
''Father always did say it was a bl**** long way for a loaf of bread!!''
Needless to say, I did not walk down the hill so therefore had no need to walk up it!
More of our travels tomorrow!
Have a great day! ;-)
