The Crescent

The Crescent Review

Almost all out-of-town roads lead toward this central green with its curving semicircle of buildings. The Georgian-era Crescent, with its arches, colonnades, and 378 windows, were built in 1780 by fashionable architect John Carr for the fifth duke of Devonshire (of nearby Chatsworth House). The thermal baths at the end of the Crescent now house a shopping center. It's near where Terrace Road meets St. Johns Road.
