ST ANN’S WELL

It was the Romans who discovered the health-giving properties of the waters that flow from the limestone hills to the south of Buxton. After a long underground journey, a geothermal spring emerges in the town at St Ann’s Well, which stands adjacent to the Pump Room, recently restored and converted into a Visitor Centre hosting tourist information and various evening events. When you visit the well be sure to take some empty bottles that you can fill with spring water. According to publicity produced in Victorian times, the water has the power to wash away gout, rheumatism, neuralgia, skin disorders, and heart diseases!
