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!

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

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.
