And, an opportunity to plan another lovely meeting.

It’s so very different from the gentle downland of Kent or the rolling acres of East Anglia, and the craggy outlines of the limestone hills and sturdy stone buildings really felt like a different country.

And what a brilliant day that was.  Ivy met us at the hotel and we then walked to the Opera House to catch the Buxton Tram.  This extraordinary vehicle is a converted milk float done up in Victorian style which transports tourists round the town.  It’s driven by a jolly former chef who wears his bowler hat with pride and who knows the history of Buxton inside out, he entertained us with fascinating stories on our round the town trip. One story was that when the milk float was launched, they asked Nestlé (who own the rights to Buxton water) to donate a big bottle to break over the engine. They refused.  However, most of the town turned out to give them a brilliant launch including Charlotte’s Chocolates, which are best I’ve ever tasted.

These now form part of the University of Derby and were at one time an orthopaedic hospital. They are circular with the largest Dome in Britain and if you stand directly underneath, the echo is awesome.  And the second was the hairiest ride down the steepest hill in the town. It’s a must for any visitor. The tour ended at Peake’s Cavern, an amazing limestone cave with an underground river and spectacular stalactites and stalagmites all guided by a most entertaining student on his summer job.  Then, we went to Ivy’s where her lovely husband had prepared a splendid lunch.  It was such a lovely experience to meet another grannynetter, someone we would never have known but for this site.

But well worth it for such a satisfying long weekend.
