We left Buxton yesterday afternoon, but before we left eldest granddaughter Louise found a leak ... water coming from under the washing machine! George pulled the washer out but found that the water was coming from the outlet from the sink. This was soon fixed and it was time to push the washer back under the counter.
There is very little friction on the floor and as George tried to use his back his crocks slipped so Louise was used as a 'stop' to finish the job ... a job well done!
Passing Buxton Pavilion as we leave the spa town. The Pavilion arrived with the boom period of the railway in 1863 and the gardens finished in 1871.
We've not visited yet but certainly will in the summer.
From Buxton we journeyed once again up over the hills ...
looking down to the valley villages
into the Staffordshire Moorlands
We could see for miles and miles!
Eventually through Stone ...
and a few minutes on the M6 and off again ...
Recognise this boating town?
and this church spire ... answers in the comments below please!
To our next Christmas venue ...
our son's family home in Codsall ... another place boaters will know.
