A war memorial and lovely viewpoint. Info boards, plenty of benches, and the cafe is usually open for tea and cake etc. I've not been in it yet though. We visited as part of the walk from Cromford Canal. At least when you get here, you know it's all downhill after that. Close to the tram museum, or you can... More

A great place to pay respects to the fallen soldiers. Derbyshire countryside fills the vast expanse and the well kept rolling hills are beautiful. £1.50 to park a car (in the honesty box as you drive up the lane) and donation at entrance to the tower (honesty box system). Picnic area available. Lovely tea and cake at the coffee shop... More

Worth popping in to if only for the views. The memorial was closed, bit of a shame really but I was quite happy to stand there and stare. Great building.

We spent the Bank Holiday weekend in Crich and decided to drive up to the Memorial. We arrived 17 minutes before the advertised closing time to find the gates already locked. You could still walk up the steep driveway/public footpath but there were a few in our party who were not physically able. I was disappointed for them because those... More

Amazing views of the area. Only take 20 mins up and down and a few pics so do this aswell as the trams or visit a tea room or take a walk around the fields like we did

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.
