Crich - the upper village and the church
Crich - the upper village and the church
Seen from Church Meadow.
The nearer housing has been built in the last few years, but local planning regulations have required it to be built in suitable local materials. It is certainly not out of keeping with the older buildings on the top of the ridge.
The wall at the bottom of the field marks the line of the railway which used to run up to Crich Quarry, and dates back to 1846. The trackbed was slightly incised and the farm access crosses the trackbed on a bridge which can just be made out beyond the gate.
The two roads in the new development, Dowie Close and Hodder Close, are named after two of the steam locomotives which operated on the line.
