Funny everybody loved going to Buxton and wants to go back so why was the place not packed out when they were running.

With Stoke gone, crowds might increase if there was a Buxton revival.

Location. Location. Location..

A fair old way outside of Buxton and relied in the main on Belle Vue and Sheffield followers if you looked at what many of the spectators wore..

Dont think it ever really captured the imagination of the towns inhabitants and without any other living beings, apart from cows and sheep, within several miles radius of its location it would be very hard to attract 'locals' (as there wasn't many!)...

Lovely on a summers day, not so if it was a 'bit parky', and you could get all four seasons in a day..:D

Facilities at best 'basic' but an enjoyable day out, and great to watch the racing so close to the action..
