Buxton is a market town in the north-west of Derbyshire, with the highest elevation above sea level of any market town in England. Less than an hour’s drive from Derby, Manchester, and Sheffield, Buxton has been a popular destination for visitors to the Peak District for decades, and its characteristic Georgian and Victorian architecture regularly provides the backdrop to various theatre. However it was during the 18th and 19th centuries, under the patronage of successive Dukes of Devonshire, that the Palladian splendour of the Buxton of today was designed and built - including the magnificent semi-circular Crescent, The Great Stable, Hall Bank, The Square, The Pavilion Gardens and The Opera House.
