Crich Stand

Sherwood Foresters Regiment Memorial

 

This is perhaps the most famous landmark in Derbyshire and is situated over 340 metres above sea level.  The Stand is the memorial of the Sherwood Foresters Regiment,  dedicated to the Worcestershire and Sherwood Foresters Regiment and the Mercian Regiment.


The spiral staircase with fifty-eight steps takes the visitor to the viewing gallery from where, on clear days, visitors can pick out 7 counties and various landmarks over the surrounding countryside.
