It was a pretty bleak cold day when we visited, paid to get in but the tower wasn't open so it took us all,of 10 mins to walk around the outside. Great views though such a high point but we were to cold to stay longer not much went on really it was over pretty quick.

A beautiful well maintained site with just enough information boards about the history. A well thought out group of memorials with valuable personal stories. And free to visit but honesty box car...

Not the easiest place to find but well worth the effort (literally) as its quite a steep walk up to the Momument. Known locally as"Crich Stand" it is about 1000ft above sea level and can be seen standing proud from miles around. There's been a tower of some sort or another on this site since the 18th century and the... More

Dropped on this Memorial Tower by accident, we had gone to the Tram Museum and at the end of there Tram line, there is a walk that takes you up the hill and around to the Memorial Tower. Stunning view, from both the Tower and hill side. Carry on walking down the hill back to the Tram Museum you will... More

This is a lovely place to visit and offers more than you would imagine. The grounds are well kept and great for picnicking and the view from the top of the tower can be fantastic - on a clear day. However, wrap up warm as it does tend to get a bit chilly when the sun is not out!!

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
