Pictures of Crich
Ah! the romance of it all, who could imagine that high in the Derbyshire hills you would uncover a Museum dedicated solely to the golden era of the Tramcar - such a place is Crich.
Here in this small hill village, vintage Tramcars from the world over have been lovingly restored and are on display in a fascinating museum which occupies a disused quarry. This unique display is further enhanced by a period setting comprising of the reconstructed facade of Derby's Georgian Assembly Rooms and a collection of Victorian Street furniture.
This wonderful museum is alive with memories of the past - close your eyes and you can easily imagine the bright young things of the day, all clad in their Sunday best, clambering up the steps to reach a prized seat atop of the open topped Tramcar, to enjoy a Sunday afternoon ride! Such was the age of Romance.
