On our drive to Poole’s cavern and Buxton country park we stopped to take in some of the views and of course take a few pictures.
Once we arrived we walked to the summit of Grin Hill, just a 20 minute brisk walk from Poole’s Cavern, to Buxton’s very own folly, Solomon’s Temple.
Solomon’s Temple actually occupies a site of ancient significance. It rises from the centre of an ancient burial mound, and during the tower’s construction an archaeological dig revealed several Bronze Age skeletons from the ‘Beaker’ period, along with later Roman items.
After taking a short rest to enjoy the spectacular views across the High Peak we resulted to take a guided tour of Poole’s cavern.
You can find more information from Poole’s cavern official website at poolescavern.co.uk
It says “Take a journey beneath the earth with expert guides, explore the vast limestone caverns see how crystal stalactites have lined the chambers over millions of years.”
We did and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
