The War Memorial of the
Sherwood Foresters Regiment
In Honoured Memory.
A trig point behind the monument proves a commanding viewpoint over Derbyshire.
The view from the trig point over the National Tramway Museum to the rolling hills beyond.
The church spire in Crich is just visible in the middle distance from the foot of the monument.
Looking back down the approach road to the village of Crich.
The memorial stands like an inland lighthouse 1000ft above sea level.
It is said that, on a clear day, you can see eight counties from the hill at Crich Stand.
The Sir Horace Smith-Dorrien Memorial at the foot of the Stand.
The approach from the car park
to the War Memorial is via a
flight of steps and this pathway.
