In view of the rapidly developing coronavirus crisis and its possible implications for our staff, volunteers and visitors, Buxton Civic Association board of trustees have decided that the Cavern, Visitor Centre and Cafe should be closed to the public with immediate effect.
This is a temporary closure until the end of March, in the first instance. The decision will be reviewed at that time, but will remain under constant review in the meantime.
This is clearly a dynamic rapidly changing emergency situation which we will have to continue to respond rapidly and flexibly to.
We intend to keep our woods and Buxton Country Park open to the public and we will continue to encourage as many people as possible to use them for exercise and emotional and spiritual refreshment.
The wellbeing of our staff, volunteers and visitors remains our top concern.
