A stroll through Buxton Country park from Poole's Cavern leads to the summit of Grin Low at 1440' altitude and the Victorian viewing tower of Solomon's Temple.Built in 1896 the 20' tower with spiral stairs give a magnificent platform to view the surrounding Peak District landscape and the Spa town of Buxton in the valley below.

The views from the temple are 360 degrees and look far across the countryside. You can climb up to the top of the tower although it was quite busy when we were there.

What a lovely view and what a gorgeous place to visit..a bit away from the Buxton town and you have to climb up the Solomon temple. Excellent place to go when it is sunny or not raining

The walk up from Pooles Cavern through Grin Low was beautiful. Lots of paths to go exploring the woods. A steep and rugged climb up to the temple but the views were magnificent. Picked a superb day to be able to see for miles around
