Caption
Situated near the Derbyshire Village of Crich, Crich Stand is a memorial tower, built in 1923 and dedicated to the memory of 11,409 men of the Sherwood Foresters who died during the first World War. The memorial now honours those who died in the Second World War and other conflicts, up to the year 1970.

Crich Stand is now a Grade II listed building and stands 1,100 feet above sea level. It is an operational lighthouse tower complete with flashing beacon.

The hill on which it is set has been used as a signalling point for centuries - including during the Spanish Armada in the 16th Century, and is often used as a site for celebratory beacons to this day.

This panorama is only one of over 1000 of the Peak District National Park and surrounding area in the U.K. See them all at Peak District View
