Travel Tips for Buxton
St Ann's Well
This warm thermal spring is known as St Ann's Well. The water from the spring is constant and whenever we have visited there is usually a queue of people filling all their bottles (or should I say gallon containers) with the water which is free. It is difficult to get a photograph but the people filling their bottles moved away for me to snap this.
The well is opposite the Crescent.
Not only did Bess of Hardwick own Old Hall in Buxton, but with her second husband Sir William Cavendish (the Duke of Devonshire's family name) they also bought the land and then built Chatsworth House. Their second son is the actual start of the line of the Dukes of Devonshire. He was given the title of Earl in 1618 and in 1694 the then 4th early was made the 1st Duke of Devonshire.
The Slopes is a small park area opposite the Crescent. It was built in the early 1800's apparently so 'people could take gentle strolls along the paths'!!!! Yes you can take gentle strolls but you have to get up there first. There are steps but there is also a path which is sooooo steep. In fact I remember years ago it had been snowing and I couldnt even get up I kept on slipping back down.
In 1985 this barrel shaped stained glass roof was added. It was done by someone called Brian Clark who is apparently an artist but also a painter of stained glass.Although it is a nice addition I actually felt it was a bit modern for the building.
Home of Buxton Spring Water
On the Sunday after the hectic weekend of the Manchester Christmas Markets VT meet Suet (Sue) picked us up in her car and Myself and Myfanwe (Vicki) went out with her for the day. Vicki had wanted to go to Buxton and so that was were we headed stopping off at Lyme Park along the way.
On arriving at Buxton we called in at the Railway Pub for something to eat. We has their Sunday carvery which for £6.95 was great value and it was really nice.
We then had a walk up the main st and to St Ann's well and back before heading off back as Sue had a long drive home.
