The Toxic Blue Lagoon of Buxton

http://tomscott.com – http://twitter.com/tomscott – In a disused quarry at Harpur Hill, near Buxton, there’s a bright blue lagoon. It looks like a perfect place to cool off in summer. And it is, if you enjoy skin irritation and fungal infections. But the strange thing is: I arrived expecting to find it black, not blue…

Why do I talk about dark and lonely water, and about fools ignoring signs? Watch this, which terrified the children of 1973: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XNPMYRlvySY

Thanks to Chris Dymond, who was my camera operator for this trip to Sheffield, and who also gave me a lift out to the middle of the Peak District to film the place!
