This building was built (well not by himself personally) the 5th Duke of Devonshire who lived at Chatsworth House, in 1784 at a cost of £38,000. It was built with accommodation, shops, card rooms, lounges, restaurants for I would assume 'gentry' who came to take the spa waters for which Buxton became famous.
