Lyme Hall - Disley
Lyme Hall Disley is not very far away probably about 10-12 miles. A lovely building, in beautiful countryside. I
The BBC also used this location for their own adaptation in 1995 of Pride and Prejudice. See my Disley page
It is 13 miles from Buxton to Disley on the A6 North
The Cavendish Arcade was originally the thermal baths and was built in 1820.
It is now a small shopping mall (see my shopping tip). This is also a Grade II listed building. The baths had dressing rooms, vapour and shower baths, all mod cons really, well for the time they certainly were.
The Children's Well
This well is called the Children's Well, not sure when it was actually built. But it is a tradition going back hundred's of years for villagers to 'dress' their wells. Its is called 'Wells Dressing'. I think it originally had religious connotations. When they have the well dressings, they have boards which are covered in clay and from what I can gather they are soaked to make the clay soft and then covered in flower petals, leaves, moss, twigs, berries, cones, all things natural to make a picture. This usually happens in the summer months.
