Town of Buxton
The spa town of Buxton in the English East Midlands is considered the gateway to the Peak District National Park. It was a municipal borough until 1974, when it was merged with adjoining areas to form the District (later Borough) of High Peak, still remaining within the county of Derbyshire.

Buxton Jewish Community
Although there had been individual Jews in Buxton from the early nineteenth century number, an organised Jewish community was not established until the influx of evacuees during WorldWar II, who established the only known Jewish congregation in the town, the Buxton Hebrew Congregation, which did not survive long after the end of the War.
