Edwinstowe Church
FACTS

The present building was largely erected during Henry II's time.

Edwinstowe takes its name from King Edwin of Northumbria. He was killed at the Battle of Hatfield (AD 633) just a mile and a half from the village. He was buried for a time in a clearing on which St Mary's was later built.

St Mary's church, Edwinstowe
If you believe the tales of the forest, this is where Robin Hood and Maid Marian were married.

To be precise they were married at the door of St Mary's.

The parish church is tucked back from the main crossroads in the village.

If you wander into the centre of Edwinstowe you'll see a statue of Robin proposing to his lady. Very touching.

St Mary's has more in common with the legend of Robin than you think. Apparently in 1334, the local vicar was convicted of forest trespass and the killing of the King's deer.

See our Edwinstowe gallery.
