The Derbyshire Dome, which once served as stables for the elegant spa attendees in the glory days, is the largest unsupported dome in Europe and today is home to the University of Derby.
|The Dome is also a popular wedding venue.|
Buxton, which has good transport links to most of Derbyshire, is also a good location for walks. You can see a lot without a car, particularly if you have a senior railpass or get an all-day bus pass that covers the entire region.
Right on the outskirts of Buxton is an impressive cave and a walk up to Solomon's Temple, a 20-foot high, two-story folly, built in the 1890s. On a clear day, the views are fantastic.
And look at this great photo that Kevin took of a young girl who was sitting in one of the tower's windows:
I love this image! Check out the black-and-white version (and his other fascinating work) on Kevin's photo blog.
