Talking Signposts 2015 & 2016

SignpostAbout Talking Signposts:

The idea of the Talking Signposts is to help visitors enjoy the town. We base ourselves by the map at the bottom of The Slopes near Turner’s Memorial and hand out the Buxton Town Guides, produced by Vision Buxton, along with a small selection of other brochures and leaflet.

For the last two years our Volunteer Signposts have covered pretty much the whole of July and August in 2 hour shifts through the week. Not every shift was covered – if you’d like to join the team we can always use more volunteers, do please let us know.


We know that visitors really appreciated having a real person there to help guide them to where they wanted to go, and tell them a bit more about Buxton and what was going on around the town.

There’s more detail in the Project Proposals (Talking Signposts 2015 and Talking Signposts 2016) and in the Closing Report for 2015. A Closing report for 2016 will be up here soon.
