Welcome to Dorset Allsorts

We'll be posting a variety of facts and photos of whatever takes our fancy as we wander around Dorset. They may be of churches, buildings, visitor attractions or natural scenes – in fact there will be all sorts! We hope they will give you a glimpse of some of the sights this beautiful county has to offer.

Gold Hill

Gold Hill, in Shaftesbury, is famous for being the street in a Hovis commercial in the 1970's  It's the one where the Yorkshire lad is pushing his bike 'to the top of the world'.  This is a clip of the Hovis Advert
