Britain from A to Z - G

Today we take at look at places beginning with the letter G and we have two waterfalls in Scotland, a Cambridge College and an iconic image of a Dorset village.
Grey Mare's Tail
Grey Mare's Tail is a 60-metre (200 ft) hanging valley waterfall near to Moffat in southern Scotland. The fall is produced by the Tail Burn flowing from Loch Skeen cascading into the Moffat Water in the lower valley below.
Big Burn Waterfall at Golspie, Sutherland, Scotland.
Gibbs Building
The Gibbs Building in Cambridge, viewed across The Backs.
The Gibbs Building is part of King's College, a constituent college of the University of Cambridge which was founded in 1441 by Henry VI, soon after he had founded its sister college in Eton. In 1724 James Gibbs redesigned the front court, but was able to only build the west range of his scheme, which is the present Gibbs Building. 
Gold Hill
Gold Hill, Shaftesbury was the main setting for the 1973 "Boy on Bike" television advertisement for Hovis bread, which has been voted Britain's favourite advertisement of all time. It was directed by Ridley Scott, and the hill is still known to many people as "Hovis Hill".

As usual, my work is available to purchase as original  Wall Art, in a variety of formats from stretched canvas or framed prints, metal or acrylic prints,or simply as standard prints for you to mount in your favourite picture frame. They are also available as greeting cards or printed onto iPhone or Galaxy phone cases, throw pillows or duvet covers or tote bags or shower curtains.
