In preparation for a day trip to Buxton, I had identified the church of St. Mary the Virgin as a potential place to visit and, having had this recommended to me by the tour guide that I met whilst in St. Anne's church, I decided...More

I was exploring the side streets off the High Street and was so glad that I did as I found this homely and charming Arts & Crafts-designed church. As I'm a big fan of church architecture, I took quite a few photographs. Alas, the church...More

We went here as part of the tram tour. Tucked away in Higher Buxton you could easily miss it but it's a lovely church and well worth a visit.

Our visit coincided with a brass quintet's rehearsal, so we didn't spend as long here as we would have liked. However, we could see enough of the building to appreciate the Arts and Crafts style, especially the 'eyebrow'? windows. We spent longer outside looking at...More
