Buxton flurry

Saturday, January 25, 2020




Renowned for its bleak winter weather, Buxton can actually look very picturesque and quaint after a light dusting.  In this instance,  within a few hours all traces of snow had gone.

I remember the winter of 2010 being pretty bad here but apparently 1947 in Buxton was branded 'the longest and harshest in the town's history'.













Buxton - Buxton Opera House

Friday, January 24, 2020


Buxton Opera House was built in 1903 and designed by Frank Matcham, designer of the London Palladium (1910) and the London Coliseum (1904).
Adjacent is the Pavilion Gardens.
Buxton Opera House is located in The Square, Buxton spa town in Derbyshire, East Midlands region of England.

Over the years I've taken numerous shots and different angles of this magnificent building but were never really 'satisfied'.
Until now.
Fortunately, these photo samples were taken with no vehicles parked-up in front spoiling the view!


 

Buxton - Pavilion Gardens Park



Although it's winter, the local park has some really interesting things to see (and photograph), from trees looking like some kind of intricate nervous system silhouetted against the sky, to lonely park benches that have seen far better days and company.  

Indeed, Buxton's Pavilion Gardens park is truly a wonderful place to walk around and enjoy nature's beauty - for free.

In fact, for a summer family day out, there's plenty to see and do including a miniature Railway, play areas, nearby facilities / kiosk, bandstand and much more. 

Highly recommended.
