Festival Walk - How Buxton helped build the 20th Century

Festival Tea Garden, St John's Churchbutton--dates-and-timesDates & Times

Romans, Georgians and Victorians shaped Buxton, but the town itself played a major role in architecture worldwide in the 20th Century.

This walk features homes designed by Richard Parker and Raymond Unwin who began their careers here before championing garden cities, town planning and helping President Franklin D Roosevelt with his ‘New Deal’. Led by art historian Alan Powers after his Book Series talk, with help from John Bishop, an architect who teaches young people to understand their environment.
