Overview

'To be honest, something about the names Crich and Heage doesn't seem too promising. To a walker it's names like Bowfell and Crinkle Crags that grab the attention and whet the appetite. Crich and Heage are two Derbyshire villages, but they are set in lovely countryside in the transition zone between the lowlands of the Midlands and the higher ground of the Peak District. Crich is famous as the rather unlikely location of the major Tramway Museum for the country ...'
