After a day at the tramway museum when we wanted to walk to the stand but thought it would be too far for our 2year old. We parked up and walked the short distance from the car park to the memorial. It really is beautiful...More

Whenever you drive around the Amber Valley you nearly always catch sight of the Sherwood Foresters memorial at Crich. Go and visit it. A lovely little walk and once you climb the tower you'll love the views. Stunning.

Went to see this memorial on our trip around Derbyshire. We loved the views and the memorial itself is in a fabulous place and is an experience. Climb to the top to experience it fully.

Lovely view up top we did a circular route from belper and it’s just stunning. The place has a lot of history and despite being local I have never been before. It was nice to see it :)

If you are a Military person especially Sherwood Foresters, Worcestershire and Sherwood Foresters or Mercian Regiment this is a must visit. The views are breathtaking too. There is a Tea Room on site which sells tea coffee etc and lovely homemade cakes.

We went to this memorial and loved the amazing views all around. There is some scaffolding around the tower so we could not walk up it but still, managed to enjoy ourselves. I managed to lose a pair of trainers there when changing in the...More
