Following yesterday’s post from Country Calling I thought I’d remind us of their lovely write-up about Shaftesbury – It’s all happening in Shaftesbury (not) …… It’s a couple of years since it was penned so a few details have changed but the sentiment is the same – that Shaftesbury has retained its character and identity by keeping hold of its traditional independent businesses and not embracing change for the sake of it. It’s what gives it a point of difference from other similar small towns around the country.

Yet scratch the surface a little and most of today’s contemporary needs and tastes are here┬ábut perhaps more gently put before us!
