Newstead Abbey
The monks of St. Mary's Priory were outraged. It appeared that the outlaws knew exactly when and where to attack the convoys travelling in and out of Priory. Time to call in the Sheriff of Nottingham!

Robin Hood's Hill, seen from the A6097
Formerly known as Robin Hood's piss-pot this was never the hooded man's toilet but something constructed over 5000 years ago to remember the man in Lincoln Green (or someone who resembled him).

Sherwood Forest
If half a dozen men didn't want to be found in Sherwood Forest a 1000 men wouldn't be able to find them. The Sheriff and his men should have looked inside the Major Oak!
