Whilst it is never certain that such persons as Robin Hood and Little John existed, it is a great legend and therefore worth a climb up to the church (steep roads in each direction). The church is very attractive.

Whether you believe it or not, it's worth a walk to see Little John's grave because the church itself is quite pretty.

My husband and I were unaware that Little Johns grave was in this graveyard when we visited so it was a very nice surprise when we came across it. We like to visit old church's and have a walk around all the old graves and even sit quietly to gather our thoughts and think of our lost loved ones, so... More

I’ve passed through Hathersage very many times but, although it’s quite an attractive village and a good base from which to explore the spectacular landscapes of the Peak District that surround it, I’ve never felt compelled to stop there. Having taken the 272 bus to meet up with a geology group in Castleton but realising that I was not going... More

I am not religious in the least but this church and yard/cemetery are a credit to the guys we witnessed working on the graves and grounds in general,it is superb attention to detail and so pleasing on the eye.

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.
