This is on a high point in Crich so can be seen in the surrounding area. Great views from the top. Nice to know that the soldiers sacrifice was commemorated in this way.

We love it here, we don't live too far away and on all our country walks we always try to spot Crich Tower. We had a lovely picnic and watched the men playing their bagpipes which may I add was fantastic entertainment our boys age 1 and 2 loved it. The car park is only £1.50 and you can stay... More

I'm from Derbyshire in fact I lived within miles of this place for the first half of my life. Glad I came home to visit this wonderful place. First Crich ... not "Critch" is a lovely village. Come here but don't tell too many people as it is a Derbyshire gem. The stand or monument as it has become recently... More

A 'must visit' spot offering views of many counties on a good weather day. Very sobering to read the names of all the fallen, particularly those from the sad Blair-induced wars of recent times. A fitting memorial for truly brave men and for one of the great Regiments.

I live a few miles from Crich Stand and can see it from my house.This memorial to soldiers of the Sherwood Foresters and the regiments that have replaced them is set in a stunning location above the village of Crich. If you are lucky to be there on a sunny day then the views are spectacular, but even on a... More

I feel I must correct the title for this Memorial. The Memorial is that of the SHERWOOD FORESTERS, dedicated to the 11,409 Foresters from WW1 and 1520 Foresters from WW2 who made the supreme sacrifice, The WORCESTERSHIRE & SHERWOOD FORESTERS (WFR), and further dedicated to the fallen of the MERCIAN REGIMENT, of which WFR form the second battalion. This may... More

We were visiting friends in Bakewell and Matlock area and made a small detour to check out this viewpoint on the map. What a pleasant surprise, the view of the countryside was fantastic. The staff tending the ground are very nice and we bought some refreshment from the little cafe. There is no obvious parking lots other than for the... More
