229 Buxton

Ever since Roman times people have been coming to Buxton for their health. The natural mineral springs brought prosperity to Aquae Arnemetiae with a stately Opera House and elegant Georgian Crescent. But before "Taking the Waters" you must climb to Corbar Cross for a bird's-eye view of the town. The walk will probably do you more good than the water, but it's lovely and warm to cold hands and, if you bring an empty bottle, you can take some home for tea.
