The photos on this page show Balmoral Mansions, Marlborough Road in Buxton. This was the Balmoral hotel and before that the Primitive Methodist Guest House. However, I don’t know if the latter two are one and the same, I rather doubt it.

As theĀ  pictures show, it was originally a pair of semi-detached houses and I have not established if the Guest House was both or only one of them. The only other reference to date is in an 1881 directory, ‘Whitcombe, Jasper, The Balmoral Boarding House, Devonshire Park’ but Methodism is not mentioned.

Devonshire Park was the first name for the area covered by Devonshire and Marlborough roads.

Does anyone know anything more?
