Buxton Pump Room Heritage Talk – The Waters of Buxton with Gill Williamson
Gill Williamson has had an interest in the evolution of landscapes and how people use them, since undertaking a geography degree “many years ago”.
During a career in industry, her interest found outlets in spare-time travel and exploration. In retirement, she has researched the histories of diverse historic places and guided groups of visitors around them. These include the medieval buildings of Manchester, the National Trust’s historic gardens at both Hardwick Hall and Lyme Park and The Dome in Buxton.
She started researching the evolving history of Buxton’s warm spring waters in 2017 and has worked as a volunteer for the Buxton Crescent Heritage Trust since it was formed.
