A Day Out in Crich

The Loaf in Crich

With our exciting and exclusive Banks Close Development within minutes from the village of Crich, today we thought we’d cover a full day of what you can do and places to eat and visit.

It’s so easy to get to and you could effectively walk from one of our houses, but its easy to jump in the car, turn right out of our development and head up the hill to Crich. We’d recommend trying to park on the Market Place but parking is limited.

Car Parking in Crich

Parking in Crich can be limited, but we’d recommend parking on the market place and using that area as your base to visit the many sites of this beautiful village.

Alternative parking includes the Crich Tramway Museum and the Memorial Tower and walk down to the centre.

Start The Day With a Cuppa

What better way to start the day than with a Cuppa from the family bakery and kitchen called The Loaf. Be tempted by their baked goods including super large crossiants and buy a loaf od their amazing sourdough bread for home.

Sit inside in the heat, or head out for that special feeling of cold around your face whilst cupping a hot drink. We’d recommend one of their tasty lattes.

Take in the views

Start walking up Cromforf Road towards the famous Crich Stand which is also known as the Crich Memorial. It is a prominent landmark situated at the top of Crich Hill.

It was erected in 1923 as a memorial to the lost soldiers who lost their lives in World War I, it stands at 1,000 feet above sea level and offers breathtaking views of the surrounding Derbyshire Countryside.

It is a super popular destination for hikers and visitors seeking stunning vistas as well as a reminder of the enduring legacy of those who gave their lives in service to the country.

Transport yourself by Tram

After visiting Crich Stand, head down the hill and to the right and you’ll find yourself at the entrance to Crich Tramway Museum and head for a ride along this heritage tramline.

Opened in 1963 the museum preserves and showcases an extensive collection of vintage trams from around the world. Visitors can step back in time as yhey ride beautifully restored trams along secnic tracks, traversing a recreated village street and experiencing the sights and sounds of bygone eras.

One of the highlights of the cobbled street is the old Derby Assembly Rooms, moved and re-built brick-by-brick to this amazing location. Before you go don’t for get to buy a quarter of tuffies for the journey home.

Time for some dinner

Spending the day in Crich can make you hungry, before you head home to Bullbridge, head back towards your car on the market place and drop into The Old Black Swan Public House.

Reviewers of this public house have commented on the “nice beer garden and good food” as well as “some good ales at good prices” – Well worth the visit.
