BUXTON PAVILION GARDENS
The Pavilion Gardens is a Grade II listed park covering 23 acres of landscaped gardens in the centre of Buxton. Edward Milner designed and laid out the park, on land given to the town in the 1870s. Recently the gardens have been restored, with the help of a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
A town with fine parks and grand old buildings. The main reason why Buxton has grown to its present size is due to the thermal springs it stands on, from where the water rises at a constant temperature of 82 F (28 C).
From Buxton Country Park the walk soon climbs up to the moors and as Stanley Moor is approached there are good views over Axe Edge and from the best vantage points at the top of the climb Kinder Scout can be seen in the distance. Grin Low and Solomon's Temple are visited on thisinteresting walk.
