#CountryKids Poole's Cavern and Buxton Country Park

Country Kids from Coombe Mill Family Farm Holidays Cornwall


On our drive back north from Ashbourne we stopped in Buxton at Poole's Cavern. This is one of Derbyshire's show caverns as it contains stalactites and stalagmites. When we went there when my daughter was a toddler she impressed us all by pronouncing these properly! This time both of mine were old enough to appreciate the cavern:
