Watching nature take its course, from the top of a hill in northern England

Pavilion Gardens, Buxton


A quick fire post of the Pavilion Gardens in Buxton, resplendent in a cloak of snow.

PG 5-2

Snow always seems to catch the the gardens and the architecture of the buildings  in a good light.

PG 1-2

The Pavilion Gardens were first opened in 1871 


PG 2-2

I’m sure some one told me that originally there was an ice rink,  on what is now the site of the multi story car park, but I didn’t think you needed a photo of that. Below, the river Wye, it disappears underground,  just before the Georgian buildings:

PG 4-2

it was culverted to accommodate the building of The Crescent (more on that tomorrow)  the river remerges  at the other side of town

PG 3-2

I must be on my way,

Take away 2 birds-2

Joe and I have a journey to make.

Watching the rhythm of rural life, from the top of a hill in northern England. Having spent most of my life avoiding writing, I now need to do it! I am no domestic goddess, but if I were expecting visitors to my home, I would whisk round with the duster and plump up the cushions and generally make the place look presentable. I hope that by putting my words where others may see them it will encourage me to ‘tidy up and push the Hoover around’ my writing. On the other hand I may just be adding to the compost heap. Only time will tell! Pull up a chair, sit yourself down, I’ll put the kettle on.

  3. You set the bar very high, Mrs. Uhdd! This is an elegant stroll.

  4. The pavillion garden pictures inspired me to ride there today.
    I managed it and then rode the long way home to record 123miles on the roadbike
    Thanks Uphill.

    Buxton was very busy and very cold.
    The A6 back to Bakewell went on forever.

    Bakewell was even busier then Buxton

    Wonder what everyone is buying
