Fresh air without getting soaked

Nestle has assured the Council that there is ‘going to be more flexibility in relation to the land.’ (Buxton Advertiser 31/01/13). The consultation period ended in April and the formal representations are now due so we must check www.highpeak.gov.uk to see updates on preferred options.
Old photographs of Buxton with its beautiful canopies show what a practical solution the Victorians had to our special climate. They enjoyed healthy fresh air, without the inconvenience of being soaked through between visits to independent and individual shops. What a wonderful idea for the future.
