Here are some of our merry band practicing our best smiles. We are rarely allowed out of tram HQ so we are very excited!!

Nothing quite prepares you for the size of the crowd. This was the view as we turned on to Terrace Road. What a lot of effort goes into the Well dressing and Carnival but boy it’s worth it.

Not quite sure what tram driver Fred and Michael are plotting maybe they are discussing ever more exciting tours?

What a great day and what a great town. We love you Buxton xxx
