|Grin Low & Solomon's Temple|
|Grin Low Caravan Club site is situated
just outside the Derbyshire town of Buxton which lies in
the centre of the Peak District National Park.
Originally a quarry Grin Low is a lovely site which has been attractively landscaped, it also has a choice of beautiful walks in the area.

|Early Saturday morning we awake to grey
skies yet again and after a hearty breakfast of bacon and
eggs Ann and I set off for the short walk to Buxton by
way of Solomon's Temple - built on the site of a
neolithic burial mound in 1896.
The temple is a short diversion from our path down through Grin Low woods to Buxton and as the bacon and eggs were lying a bit heavy Ann decided to park her bum on a nearby park bench and await my return.

|Looking down to Buxton from the top of Solomon's Temple.|
|After a steep descent through Grin Low Woods we pass by Pooles Cavern and a little further on we arrive in Buxton town centre.|
|How does that old saying go: -
Whatever goes down must come up mmmm something like that!
Ann takes a well earned rest on the way back up through Grin Low Woods.
|We exit the woods and find ourselves on
the top of the quarry looking down over our caravan.
We both enjoyed this lovely circular walk.
|After tea the clouds began to break so I
headed back up to Solomon's Temple just before dusk
hoping to get some decent pictures.
I hung around for what seemed like ages but the sunset I was hoping for never really materialised, anyway here are a couple of my best shots.
