Buxton: Grin Low and Solomon's Temple

You need to log in as a member of Walkingworld to access the details for this walk and have an active subscription. Please join, or log in above if you are already a member.

The walk is based on the Visitor Centre at Poole's Cavern on the southern edge of the town. Field-paths lead to a path along a disused railway line, passing remote experimental laboratories before picking up tracks leading back into the park. The climax is an easy climb to the tower known as Solomon's Temple, which has a 360-degree panorama, before a gentle descent through mature woodlands to the car park and cafe. The walk can easily be combined with a visit to the show cave.

My wife and I did this walk in late April 2012 starting from the Caravan Club site by point 22 at the Grin Low car park. The horses from the riding stables at point 8 had churned up the mud by the gate at point 10 making stout footwear essential but otherwise a fairly straightforward and most enjoyable walk.
