Anyone visiting Derbyshire neads to call in and admire the extensive rang of trams of the buygone era, very much a enjoyable day out 👍

I'll echo that. If you do go you should ask how they got saved from destruction and you will be amazed at the stories of trams being squirreled away in corporation sheds without the knowledge of the powers that be but with the collusion of local supervisors.
The site history is interesting too. If I remember correctly the group that owned the tram collection were looking for a source of rails and the Derbyshire site were going to get rid of their narrow guage syetm. (It's basically a quarry).
The upshot was that rather than remove the rails the tram guys were offered the lower part of the site complete.
As Patric says, a good day out.

Not sure if they still do it but at one time if you turned up on an old classic bike or car entry was free. You had to agree to leave it parked up as a display for two or three hours.

I had a birthday present gift of a tram driving experience at Crich. Absolutely brilliant!
