Crich tram

This large village with its hilltop church and market cross, is probably most famous as the home of the National Tramway Museum. It offers a wonderful opportunity to enjoy a tram ride along a Victorian street scene, with original signposts, stone flags and gaslamps, all saved from the scapman. The magnificant facade is from the old assembly rooms in Derby, saved and brought to Crich after a fire destroyed the building in 1963. The fleet of over 50 tram - cars are proudly displayed in their sheds and each day during the season, a selection of them are brought out to carry visitors along the mile of relaid track. They include horse, steam and electronically operated tram - cars. Most are British, but others are from Prague, Johannesburg, New York and Vienna. A trip on a tram - car takes the visitor across the front of the limestone quarry, now being reworked, and below Crich Stand - a memorial to the Sherwood Foresters Regiment who fell in the Two World Wars, and is unexpectedly a lighthouse.
