This trip is a real steady as you go trip to remember to one of the most iconic towns of the Peaks…….. Buxton!
The drive is incredible!
As you leave the city behind and start travelling onto the country roads as you enter Endon, heading towards the historic market town of Leek. Its a real quirky town and the gateway to Buxton Road where the peaks and troughs really start to impress. The views as you go ‘over the tops’ are simply stunning and such an amazing driving road. As you head past the Winking Man through the swooping bends and off the hills as you descend into the town of Buxton.
Buxton is a picturesque spa town in the Borough of High Peak in Derbyshire, England. This beautiful town is England’s highest market town at some 1,000 feet (300 m). It lies close to Cheshire to the west and Staffordshire to the south on the edge of the Peak District National Park.
A trip to Buxton is not complete without a visit to The Crescent to take a drink of that Famous Buxton spring water straight from source at St. Ann’s Well, fed by a geothermal spring bottled by Buxton Mineral Water Company,
St Ann’s Well is an ancient warm natural spring located at the foot of The Slopes (formerly St Ann’s Cliff) and opposite the Crescent hotel and the Old Hall Hotel. A 16th-century act of parliament ruled that a free supply of the spring water must be provided for the town’s residents. The geothermal spring rises from about 1km below ground and about a million litres of water flow out per day. The mineral water emerges at a steady 27°C. Analysis of the water has indicated that it has a high magnesium content and that it originated from rainwater from around 5,000 years ago. The same spring water is bottled and sold as Buxton Mineral Water.
Suitably quenched a stroll around the adjacent Pavilion Gardens comes highly recommended along with a spot of Brunch / Lunch before jumping back into the Mini for another dose of happiness as you wind your way back over The Tops and back through Leek on your way back.
We are certain that this will be a trip to reminisce and chat over for many years to come!
This trip comes highly recommended and is sure to make you fall so in love with the Mini Cooper
