Take a stroll, with a Discover Buxton tour guide, through the vastness of the British Empire recorded on the headstones of those who came to seek health in a small provincial spa town high in the Derbyshire Hills. This walk will take you back to the 19th century when visitors flocked to take the waters. You will hear some of their family stories and about the intimate lives of the citizens of Buxton, often at a vulnerable time in their lives.

This route is not wheelchair accessible. It features uneven pavements, a graveyard and a hill.
