Buxton's growth as an inland spa town began in the 1780s when The Crescent was built for the Duke of Devonshire. This was followed by the natural baths, thermal baths, pump room and several large hydropathic establishments. Buxton became a fashionable spa resort, its popularity later boosted by the arrival of the railways. Large villas and hotels were built, as well as a range of entertainment facilities including the Pavilion Gardens and Opera House, to cater for the town's many visitors. By contrast, Buxton is also considered the gateway to the Peak district. The town's position, high up in the hills and at the head of the Wye valley, gives easy access to miles of stunning scenery. Using a fascinating collection of old and new photographs Buxton Through Time sets out to illustrate these many remarkable features and how they have adapted to the passage of time.
