Buxton is a gorgeous place, and we love it, but we have to admit that there are a few corners that are just a bit grotty. The idea of this project is to identify those places and try and do something about them.
The first area we picked up on was George Street, round the back of the Crescent. We recruited art students from the schools and from Buxton & Leek College, and between them they transformed those dull grey hoardings into vibrant colour. This fantastic jungle was the first contribution, from Buxton Community School.

Our thanks to Fairfield Builders Supplies, Buxton Woodworks and Buxton Crescent Hotel and Thermal Spa Company for providing the materials, and to the Brasserie for the contribution to the paint fund.
