Pooles Caverns Buxton England Sep 18, 2017
Pooles Caverns are at Buxton Country Park, about a mile from Buxton Opera House England. I walked through the Pavilion Park to Temple Road on to Green Lane,there are tourist signs pointing the way. Local people are very friendly and will show the way to Caverns. The Caverns are open in Summer [Mar -Oct] 09-30 -5pm ,and Winter 10am -4pm.---A natural wonder of the Peak District,millions of years old,vast limestone caverns.with guided tours,taking about one hour. In the caverns are good stone paths,no stooping, but mind your head. Millions of stalactites and stalagmites formations,large and small. The temperature in the cavern is a constant 7 degrees all year round. The caverns are dark with mood lighting,very good.----The first lighting was by candle ,The victorians had about 17 gas lights,a rusting poll can be seen today. then electric bulbs, now modern led lights. During the tour the guide turns out all light for about half a minute for total darkness. The river Wye flows through the cavern making a roaring sound. Also drips of water runs down the rock.The Visitor Centre has a Cafe with light snacks and fairtrade coffee. -- ---The Caverns are set in Buxton Country Park 100 acres of Grin Low Hill. Admission to park is free,the caverns have charges.--The park is under the care of Buxton Civic Association. The Caverns well worth a visit. --I didnt see a bus service to Caverns. There is a car park.-----It is said the name Poole is after "Robber Poole " who lived in the cavern in the 15th century.-----A famous visitor was Mary Queen of Scots in 1582.
