Down The Buxton Line

On the return from Buxton, I took these pictures.

I sat on the wrong side of the train, as the views are better on the left-side going up and the right-side going down.

  1. It is a lovely place Buxton; the park around the Pavilion Gardens is nice, and my girls used to love running around in it when they were small. But my favourite place is at the top of Buxton – literally at the top, there is a very steep hill – across the Market Square and a little way further along there is a bookshop called Scriveners. It is a second hand and rare bookseller, and it is fascinating. It is on about 5 or 6 floors, and there are sofas on most floors and some floors have a kettle, tea making supplies and a biscuit tin, so that you can get yourself a cuppa and biscuit on your way around. It is a really friendly place. Fairly nearby, perhaps 2 or 3 miles away, but you are a walker, Is Poole’s Cavern, it is a cavern that you walk into and around, and as such is easier than some of the others – Blue John you go down many many steps. And it is harder to get to.
