Half way up!!

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Gold Hill, Shaftesbury, Dorset. Usually people take their pictures from the top of the hill. I can understand why as there are extensive views of the surrounding countryside but I thought I would be different and walk up it!

Hello Rosa, delicious streetfoto, with a castle at the top, great comosition. Greets, Jos

Jos Boom

Hello Jos, that was quick! Thanks for your kind compliment. The building at the top is the back of, but separate to, the Town Hall. The Tower is St Peter's Church which was built in 1623.

Best wishes, Rosa.

Lovely Picture Rosa, It looks a little teeny weeny steep for my old legs to climb up. Best Regards Richard

A few years ago it may have been one picture from the bottom and one from the top. Now I take some at intermediate points, I wonder why?

Nice shots, Peter

Hello Richard, there is a good rail to hold onto ;~)


Hello Peter, we all know why! ;~D

Hi John, I can't deny it, I had a little sit down! Not on the red one though...nice picture by the way :-)


A leisurely Walk up Ian! If I had run down, I think my head would have made it before my feet ;-)

Mr and Mrs Patch Rowce

It's a pleasure, glad you like it.

Cheers, Rosa.

And not a yellow line in sight! Superb photo Rosa L

I'm guessing that traffic is severely restricted here..I've mentioned this before regarding the ad-hoc attitude local authorities adopt when permitting the parking of cars..I think that the commercial and financial considerations take priority over aesthetics..So hats off to Shaftesbury council!



Rosalyn Hilborne on March 12, 2012

Hi Jim, just deliveries on the hill I think. I have never seen any cars parked there. When they were doing up the museum the contractors parked the vans just out of sight, by the side of the top house! Cheers, Rosa.
