Tracing an Outlaw's Steps in England

Ever since I can remember there has been one story or legend really that has been my favorite...

Robin Hood.

So when I got a chance to explore part of the infamous outlaw's world in England this past summer I jumped at it and paid a visit to Sherwood Forest National Nature Reserve nearby Edwinstowe and not too far from Nottingham.

I visited Sherwood Forest!!
There's the man himself!
One of the lovely walking trails at the reserve
A natural fence line on the trail
There were so many incredibly old & unique trees like this one
Wow!! To think these trees have been here for 100s of years!
I can just see Robin Hood sitting at that big V branch in the trunk. Can't you?
Have you been to someplace steeped in folklore? What is your favorite story or legend? I'd love to hear about it.

  1. Thanks for sharing your photos! I visited Sherwood in March 2010 - the trees were bare but the place was still so serene.
