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.
