  • Run by volunteers this stands at the top of "Hovis Hill". It is free and interesting and well worth a visit. Who knew that Shaftesbury was famous for fabric buttons crafted on the tips of sheep horns?
  • Always thought this hill was in Yorkshire so was delighted to know it was in Shaftesbury and near to where we were staying so had to visit and tick it off my list. Well worth a visit
  • Great local history with enthusiastic staff. Next to the hovis (gold) hill too
  • Well laid out interesting things for children to do and very informative for adults
  • Nice little museum dedicated to local history.
