It's cold. Britain freezes and is covered by a blanket of snow, apart from a few exceptions. Here in South and West Dorset we were not hit as hard as other parts of the counry. In Weymouth and Portland the snow had melted not long after it had stopped falling. In North Dorset there is a lot more snow with the area around Shaftsbury hardest hit. Shaftsbury's Gold Hill, famous for the Hovis advert, is a popular spot for adults and children to taboggan with sometimes large crowds gathering at the top of the cobbled street watching the action and cheering on as participants try to avoid ending up under a parked car at the bottom. Not only is Gold Hill good for tobogganing in winter, it is also quite breathtaking location at sunset for pictures when covered in a blanket of the white stuff. It is quite tricky to get a shot sometimes with all the tabogganers but with a bit of organisation and co-operation the tabogganers will wait at the top to give us photographers the chance to get that magic moment.
