Postcards - Buxton

On a whim I went for a day out on the trains to the pleasant spa town of Buxton, where I found plenty of old buildings to admire.

The Dome is a famous building, now part of the university. It's a nightmare for the casual photographer as you can't get it all in whether outside or in!

What a splendid name for a pub. Shame it's closed.

Returning home via Manchester I diverted to Stalybridge where the welcoming lights of platform one invited me to visit the famous Buffet Bar.
