Buxton has impressed the judges who must decide if the town is the flower of entrants in the East Midlands in Bloom contest.

They toured the gardens, flowerbeds and window boxes which brought a splash of colour to Buxton in the run-up to the 175th well dressing festival.

“Everywhere we’ve been there is a view of a green space, and if it’s not a green space, it’s a beautiful historic building,” said Jo Tarrant. “The colours are really standing out against the rain.”
