Whilst out walking, take a visit to the well kept churchyard and find this grave. Teach the children a little history, wether you believe it is true or not.

I went there during my walk to stanage edge from hathersage station, as it was sort of a checkpoint. It is in church of st. Michael and all angels. Very near to hathersage train station at 10-15 min walk.

Lovely peaceful spot next to the church, a great place to spend half an hour spinning stories for children. Of course it's the real Little John, he just got moved home. Combine a walk up here with a meal in a local pub and you've got the making of a day out!

I was brought here as a child and if in Hathersage I bring people to see it - but it's just a low railing around a gravestone said to be that of Little John. Unless you have a very vivid imagination, I wouldn't make a special trip!

We were in Hathersage and decided to make the trip to Little Johns grave to show the kids. Parked near the school at the bottom of the hill and walked up. The hill is quite steep! The houses along the way are cute and the church itself quaint. We could hear choir practice going on inside while we looked for... More

Whichever route you decide to take to get to St. Michaels church, you will have a fairly strenuous walk up a hill as the Church sits almost at the highest point of the village. The grave itself is tucked away opposite the entrance to the church, adjacent a small cottage. If the ground is dry, you can try laying next... More

Our grandsons loved seeing the place where Little John is reputed to be buried. Robin Hood came alive for them....

Yep, saw this one, lovely church to visit. Dropped off on route whilst on a tour in a vintage car. If you are planning to visit you need to be doing something else as well. All the villages around here are beautiful. Eyam is steaped in history and is well worth a visit as well, so is Ashford - in... More

This is a lovely part of the world, we had a wonderful couple of days and enjoyed every minute of our stay. The Church At Hathersage is a wonderful little gem.
