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

As I travel the country as a retired Marine Officer I often stop if I see a memorial be it a larger struture or one of more modest build , be it national or just a village remembering. I have the say the Mericans Regimental is one of the most striking quite an inspiring visit

We were holidaying locally and could see the Memorial from our cottage, so we took a drive up. It's in a beautiful setting and the grounds are very well looked after and it is a fitting memorial to the Sherwood Foresters. The short walk up to the top is well worth it for the view alone.

This is a fitting monument to generations of soldiers who have dedicated their lives to Queen and Country. It is a beautiful setting and well cared for. Too emotional, I can only say, go there, spend time there, try to be there on their special day to join in the service.
