"An historic agreement has been signed which paves the way for work to begin on a £35 million scheme to transform Buxton’s iconic Crescent into the UK’s first genuine spa hotel in more than a century.
The signing of the development agreement by landowners High Peak Borough Council and Derbyshire County Council with the Buxton Crescent Hotel and Thermal Spa Company is a major step forward towards the transformation of the Grade 1 listed Crescent and adjoining Grade 2 listed Natural Baths and Pump Room.
The agreement will allow preliminary work to start this spring on the long-awaited project to deliver a 79-bedroom, five-star spa hotel incorporating the neighbouring Natural Baths, a brand new visitor interpretation centre, a state-of-the-art thermal, natural mineral water spa, and eight specialist shops". (Buxton Advertiser)
The workmen involved do no have to go far for their Health & Safety advice; "Cavendo tutus", (Safe through caution) is the family motto of the Dukes of Devonshire.The Crescent was built for William Cavendish, the 5th Duke of Devonshire.
