Steve Stamford | The Devonshire Hospital, Buxton

The Devonshire Hospital, Buxton

Or at least it was the Devonshire Hospital. For many years it was famed as a joint replacement and physiotherapy specialist hospital but as hospital stays for joint replacements went from many weeks to just a few days the powers that be decided it was no longer viable. Now part of the University of Derby much of it remains open, including the famous hydrotherapy pool - but now as a part of the university, not a hospital.

Steve Stamford | Victorian post box

Victorian post box

In Buxton, Derbyshire lives this rather splendid grade 2 listed post box. Created in 1866 in the Penfold design the VR marking is clearly visible on the front face. Still in daily use and its historical relevance is missed by the vast majority who walk past it.
Steve Stamford | Saint Marys church 1

Saint Marys church 1

Saint Mary's, Dale Road is a delightful church with very attractive windows - it almost looks like someone has draped the roof tiles on which gives a pleasing curve to what would otherwise be a normal roof.
