Old England was a country of vast, impenetrable woodland. Places like Sherwood Forest remained uncharted and ill-defined, with only wild and uncertain tracks and occasional clearings; in this dark realm grew the legend of Robin Hood and his companions. But does the hero of Sherwood Forest still linger? This fascinating volume searches for the ghosts of Merrie Men long gone amongst the trees of Sherwood and beyond, through Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Yorkshire and into Staffordshire. From hidden caves to ancient abbeys, it discovers the places mentioned in the early ballads and the ancient sites and buildings traditionally associated with this famous legendary figure, as well as something less tangible, but just as real: the ghosts who haunt them. Illustrated with more than 100 photographs, Jill Armitage takes the reader on a guided tour through the ghost stories of Robin Hood Country.
