Fine & Country High Peak - Area Information

Glossop

The small market town of Glossop is situated just outside the Peak District National Park, 15 miles east of Manchester.  Founded on the fortunes of the cotton industry and featuring many local sandstone mills, chapels and churches, Glossop has a thriving economy boosted by the local tourist trade.  A quintessential high street provides all necessary shopping conveniences and a large number of faith-based primary schools are an attraction for young families.  A short train commute to Manchester makes it an attractive choice for those wishing to explore the options of rural living on the urban edge.

 

Buxton

Described as “the gateway to the Peak District National Park”, Buxton is close to the county boundary with Cheshire to the west and Staffordshire to the south.  Buxton has a history as a spa town due to its geothermal spring which provides therapeutic mineral water at a constant 28 degrees piped to St Ann’s Well.  It is now also home to the largest spa in the UK, Buxton Crescent.  Not only does the town derive revenue from the bustling local tourist trade, the water is also bottled and exported internationally.  Another landmark is Poole’s Caven and the Devonshire Dome which now forms part of the University of Derby.  Buxton station is a short 1-hour commute to Manchester Piccadilly.

 

Chapel-en-le-frith
