The Derbyshire Peak District makes a dramatic setting for some of England's finest buildings: the rambling medieval Haddon Hall, the great ducal seat and park at Chatsworth, and the amazing late Georgian mills at Cromford and Calver. Hardwick, Kedleston and Bolsover add to the register of great country houses, while the architecture of the high spa towns, Matlock and Buxton, creates its own special atmosphere. Less well known are Derby itself, with its Georgian cathedral, and the gentler country to the south, where Repton and Melbourne preserve unusually eloquent Anglo-Saxon and Norman church buildings.
