“Stay safe & we hope to see you all again soon.”

Buxton Civic Association, which owns and manages Poole’s Cavern, has also urged people to stay away from their woodlands during the high winds.

They said:

"Please avoid walking in all BCA's woods in the very high winds predicted later today.

“This includes:

Grinlow (Buxton Country Park)




Wye Head


Shay Lodge Woods.”

The amber weather warning for High Peak is in force until 9pm today.
