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.

A bit disappointed when we found the grave. Lovely village church in a beautiful part of the peak district.

A headstone in a church graveyard. This may be where Little John was buried if he existed. Nice churchyard and go back to the village via the back gate

Mild scepticism seems reasonable when the grave of a guy who (allegedly) flourished around 1190 turns up in the early nineteenth century! But come on, let's not take it all too seriously, a trip to LJ's grave is just something you have to do if you're in Hathersage. The churchyard is very pleasant and interesting in its own right, and... More

Beautiful church and well-tended grounds and graveyard. Little John's grave is easy to find on the left, just a few steps in from the litch gate. Well-marked and well tended, this is a lovely spot for Robin Hood's Lieutenant to rest in peace.

Ok so the locals are keen that you can find this grave so there are good footpaths to the curch and it is very well signed. This said do not expected to much else but a grave. The curch was not open when I was there so I could not even go for a nosie inside which I love to... More
