The Abbey grew to become a wealthy and important part of the town and for many years it was one of the most important in England.

Today, Shaftesbury is popular with visitors, who visit the ruins of the abbey, nearby Wardour Castle, and of course Gold Hill, a steeply sloping cobbled street with amazing views over Blackmore Vale that was made famous in Hovis adverts of the 1980s.
