The main tourist accomodation in Buxton was the Crescent. Built in the 1780s by the 5th Duke of Devonshire, to the design of John Carr, it copied (and hoped to rival) the famous Crescent in Bath; it gave great impetus to the city. This PC shows the Crescent and some of the amenities (Lounge, Drawing Room, Ball Room) that Father Conmee may have enjoyed. Buxton today still calls itself a Spa town even though it no longer offers hydrotherapy.
