Gold Hill’s ‘Horrific’ Appearance Needs Attention – Shaftesbury’s Mayor Has A Plan

Shaftesbury’s mayor, Cllr Andy Hollingshead, says he’s looking into setting up a group to make sure Gold Hill is well maintained.

Former mayor Roger Booth wrote to Alfred to voice his frustration with the appearance of our town’s best-known landmark. Roger says the high wall running down the hill needs attention, and he is ‘horrified’ that foliage has been allowed to grow there.
