Crich Stand Memorial Tower, Derbyshire

Crich Stand Memorial Tower, Derbyshire. Unveiled 6 August 1923. Upgraded to Grade II* Copywright Rob Bendall. Crich Tower is a regimental memorial to the 32 battalions of the Sherwood Foresters who fought in the First World War and particularly honours the 11,409 men of all ranks who died. The circular tower - with a large stone cross inset on its face, along with the Sherwood Foresters’ insignia - is built high on the summit of Crich Hill. It stands nearly 20 metres tall and, unusually for a war memorial, has a viewing platform. In 1934, the tower was fitted with a large revolving searchlight whose beam has a range of 38 miles.
