Gold Hill is a famous street in Shaftesbury in Dorset, England. It is a steep cobbled street featured on the cover of countless books about Dorset, chocolate boxes, postcards, calendars and in television commercials.
Gold Hill featured in the 1973 “Boy on Bike” tv ads for Hovis bread. The advert was voted Britain’s favourite advertisement of all time. It was directed by Ridley Scott, and includes the distinctive music of Antonín Dvořák’s Symphony No. 9.
As it is such a well known and much photographed street, I tried to capture something a little different.
