Walk with a Geologist

Walk with a Geologist

The 400 million year history of the Peaklands and the springs which source Buxton Water. Discover what shapes the landscape of the Peak District today and how the region developed with a mix of local and Peakland history and heritage on a three hour experience with a local geologist guide.

Tour Journey

The Explorer tour takes you up into the hills around Buxton and to the local tourist spots of Solomon’s Temple and Corbar Cross, through picturesque woodlands and down into the Wye River valley. It is therefore great for new visitors who want help navigating Buxton’s green spaces. The tour lasts at least three hours and longer at a slower walking pace and so is not for the feint hearted – some parts of the route are steep and after rain become muddy. Sensible shoes are therefore required and at least a litre of water and a raincoat are recommended.

We also have an accessible version of this tour which lasts an hour and utilises the Pavilion Gardens to tell the story of Peakland geology.
