The Crescent, Buxton
The Crescent, Buxton
Designed in the 1770s by John Carr of York, to rival Bath. It was originally two hotels and six boarding houses. Eventually the hotels took over the whole block but the building became derelict in the 1980s and is about to be transformed into one, new, spa hotel utilising the hot springs which were once sampled in the former pumphouse in the foreground.
Beyond is the dome of the Royal Devonshire Hospital, originally the stable block for the hotels and now part of the University of Derby.
