GRIN LOW - 13/07/04
Photos on this page are from our walk to Soloman's Temple at Grin Low, Buxton on Tuesday 13th July 2004. We access the area following signposts from the A53 road that runs from Buxton, Derbyshire towards Leek. To see a map of the area click here.
|The walk from the Grin Low car park towards Soloman's Temple is not far but it is uphill, an alternative circular route sets off from the car park at Buxton Country Park near Poole's Cavern, this route is also uphill from Buxton and is about 1.5 miles long.|
|Soloman's Temple, also known as Grinlow Tower is a folly and was built late in the 19th century to provide work for the unemployed of Buxton. The area has been designated a site of special scientific interest due to the rare plants that grow here.|
|The elevated position of the tower at 440m high gives great views of the surrounding countryside and across Buxton, as the photo above.|
|Photos above are from the nearby Pavillion Gardens at Buxton, to see more photos from the gardens click here for our visit in August 03.|
