Buxton Crescent and its People, 1780-1840

Historian Peter Collinge returns to Buxton with stories of those who lived, worked and visited the Crescent. The Georgians were dazzled by what they referred to as ‘Bath in miniature’. The fashionable and urbane availed themselves of what its hotels, lodging houses and shops had to offer. They swept through its arcade, paraded in its grand assembly room, took the waters and bathed in the mineral baths. Underpinning all were the hoteliers and lodging house keepers and a myriad of servants.
