    Excellent pics mate, really like the look of the salon, and the stairs, liked those when we were there. Still haven't got back here, and still haven't got in the salon yet. We'll definitely have to get back up to here soon.

    Cheers,

    :) Sal

    Its a big old place isn't it. We spent over 3 hours there and didn't get to see everything.

    About 2005 I think, though don't quote me on that. I think the campus is now situated in the centre of buxton, Im sure someone more local could confirm this.
