    Lyme Hall

    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

    Chatsworth House

    Chatsworth House is worthy of a visit if you are in the area. Not only does the Dukes of Devonshire have links with Buxton but this is their family seat.

    See my Edensor page

    About 15 miles from Buxton on the A6 towards Matlock, then take the Chesterfield Road

    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.
