Streets paved with gold

Recently I found myself in the Saxon hill fort town of Shaftesbury. It was all by mistake as the place we were supposed to be going was shut so we took a detour

Now unbeknownst to many Shaftesbury in Dorset is the home of Gold Hill of Hovis ad fame (it’s not in Yorkshire as many presume). We walked up and down the cobbled hill taking in the view and the chocolate box cottages. All very idyllic. The big M used to live at the top many moons ago.
