Worth a visit if you are in the area. This well kept memorial offers wonderful view across the countryside and offers some interesting historical information. Parking and the opportunity to climb the memorial for a small donation. A few benches and pretty green spaces for a picnic, if you can find shelter from the wind!
You should be able to drive up here but for some reason it was closed so I had to park outside the gates and walk up the steep driveway to the beacon and memorial. The views are outstanding and you can see perhaps 4 counties. There are plenty of seats and a small cafe but you need to check opening... 更多
My Grandfather from Glasgow proudly served with the 8th Battalion Sherwood Foresters in WW 1. He survived the war and I wanted to visit this memorial in his memory. The views are stunning all around. We visited on a day it was meant to be open but found the gates locked and no explanation. We had made a special journey... 更多
I've been here several times over the years and it's a lovely quiet spot with views in all directions. The climb up the tower can be a bit strenuous for the elderly but we'll worth it for the views from the top. Aswell as driving up to the tower you can walk up from the tramway museum Recommended
Walked here from the tram stop at the museum and what a fitting place for a war momorial, just to sit and remember what these brave soles did for us all.
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.
We stopped here on our way home from a weekend camping, we could see the tower from our campsite and googled it to find out what it was! 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... 更多
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... 更多
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... 更多
