Such a lovely spot with fantastic views. We wanted to park up and enjoy the view. Arrived at 4:15pm and we paid our £1.50, the tower wasn't open, not really sure why. But we really didn't appreciate being moved out at 4:45 when the sign says it's locked at 5:00pm ! Visitors beware.

What a fantastic place to visit. It's a beautiful memorial that's kept in superb condition. It's a good walk up the hill to get you puffing but it's well worth it and the views are amazing. I'm very proud of this place and the people who are remembered here.

Paid for the car park but could not visit the Tower as it was closed without explanation. Not impressed that could not access the tower.

You can see eight Counties from the top of the memorial Tower on a Clear Day. Including the Humber Bridge and Lincoln Cathedral. the gardens are well kept by the resident warden.

This is a beautiful memorial and a fitting tribute to the sherwood foresters. The setting is incredible with amazing views and there are plenty of information boards. The memorial also offers picnic areas, a tea room serving delicious homemade cake and toilets. There is a small fee for parking and donation boxes.

This memorial is sited on very high hill overlooking the counties that the Sherwood Foresters Regiment was raised from. The tower and light can be see for miles at night. The views are stunning in the day and at night as the whole area is laid out before you. Pick a clear day and take binoculars (a compass and map... More

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.
