I was pleased to visit Buxton this week. Buxton was the site of a Roman Spa way back when the Romans roamed this Green And Pleasant Land. Buxton has a hot spring that produces more than a million liters of mineral water at 27 degrees C (80.6 F) every day. That's lots of warm water.
The waters there are supposed to have restorative qualities. My old bones could use some restorative. Nevertheless, it is a pretty town with a lot of attractions.
We enjoyed stopping at the Pavillion and Gardens next to the Opera House. The Gallery in the Gardenshouses the work of 40 local artists. I love local artists.
One artist that stood out for me on this visit was David Hoodith. David moved to the Peak District in 1995 and currently lives in New Mills. He's a self-taught artist who paints the dramatic Peak District landscapes and cityscapes. His loose style is pleasing and invites you in and holds you.
