just up the hill from the Scotsmans Pack is a lovely church and I. The grounds along with very old graves is Little Johns Grave. Not much to see but still worth a visit if you are in the area.

A very pretty setting and a lovely walk up to the church and grave itself. You just need to know where the sign post are before you leave the main road to go up to the grave, once at the churchyard it is easy to find the grave.

We visited on a sunny spring day so the whole of the church yard looked amazing. The grave itself is historically very interesting, and has obviously been immaculately kept. The church has some curious and very old stone carvings on it, one of which looks like a teddy bear. :) Inside the church you can buy souvenirs and books on... More

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.
