158.Gold hill or EE BY Gum

 7/10

Parking @ Shaftesbury SP7 8LQ



Starting at Shaftesbury in Dorset and A very misty start to the walk, started early as well !


Very damp as well with some very muddy tracks.


This the veiw up to Melbury hill from the A350 or not !


Another Trigpoint in fact trig number 95 !


After admiring the view from top, mmmm. We headed down hill towards Spread eagle hill.


On looking back at bottom blue skies starting to show through!


Turning into a lovely day now.


A few steam engines in this yard rusting away.


Long Bottom a very nice path back towards Shaftesbury.


Stump with many Sulfur tufts on.


At end of a Long Bottom this cool looking pond, Duckweed Green looking ace ! 


Just before civilization a small family of goats ready to nibble at anything
 including our coats !


Once into Shaftebury the second reason for the walk first being Melbury hill and this being Gold hill, seem familiar ?...........


Small boy riding down hill on bike ? Heres a clue   link    and to think 1973 ! seems like yesterday almost !


After that flashback in time ! we finish walk overlooking where we've parked and looking out onto a still misty Melbury hill.


Thats all for this week, join me again next week  :)
