Have viewed from the road many times so thought would take a look, walked up a very steep hill and into the church yard, looked at little johns grave or at least someone's who must have been about eight feet tall, well its a grave but longer than usual, outside the church is beautiful and the grounds well kept, inside...

A part of folk lore or history, whatever you believe your visit will be long remembered. Visit as part of a longer walk in the beautiful Peak District, or a shorter walk from Hathersage village. Kids love the boasting rights at school when they say they have seen Little Johns Grave!

This is in The Hathersge church yard and I guess you would want to see if you were a Robin Hood fan. However its a bit like the Nigara Falls ...... Once you have seen it what happens next. Its probably a tick list item BTW.... Hathersage is well worth a visit anyway.

Little bit history to go and look at , worth a look. Church would be worth a look too, but we were limited for parking space.

Good little find on a walk from Hathersage out to Stanage Edge, interesting bit of history/legend. Recommend the White to Dark peak walk.

Even if it turns out just to be a myth it's worth going to see little johns grave and a stroll round the churchyard. It's in such a beautiful setting and if you time it right you can hear the church bells being rung , It's a nice place for a quiet stroll after some pub lunch.

It doesn't really matter if you believe that this is really the grave of robin Hood's lieutenant or not. It is in a beautiful churchyard, just a few minutes walk uphill from the centre of Hathersage. Just go for the calm.

For many the story of Robin Hood is fiction, but frankly there more evidence to say it's real. In fact Robin of "Loxley" Loxley is a suburb of nearby Sheffield. This grave of John Little is huge!! and sits in the most beautiful and stunningly quiet and serene graveyards anywhere. The church is just so old and very quaint. There... More

The grave, of dubious historical provenance, is pretty standard, apart from being longer than most. The medieval church next to it it worth a visit though (however, Bradfield church a few miles away is a better example of such churches). The Scotman's Pack pub just down the road from the grave is well worth a visit for lunch or dinner... More

Hathersage is a frequent favourite for us and it's so familiar now that we don't need a map. There are short low level walks along the valley and more strenuous hikes up onto the edge or over to Eyam. Autumn is one of the best times to go but it's great anytime an there are teashops, pubs and outdoor shops... More
