The winding, climbing roads of North Derbyshire still bore traces of the year's early snowfall, with mud‐splashed, hard‐packed drifts remaining by the roadside, when Circuit World visited LeaRonal on the outskirts of Buxton in December. At 1007 feet, Buxton is one of the highest towns in England. A spa and holiday resort, it is situated in the picturesque Peak District with its characteristic rocky crags, rugged moorlands and wooded dales. Britain's first national park—the Peak District National Park—covers some 540 square miles and it is at the edge of this leisure area that LeaRonal's High Peak Laboratories facility is located.
