Magnificent Views and Peaceful place to visit.

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.

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.

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.

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
