A lovely place to visit, church yard is very well kept. I was told that once the grave was opened and the remains examined the height of the subject was quite tall. I am unable to verify this just word of mouth. The grave is kept by the Ancient Order of Foresters, if l recall correctly. If you are in... More

This is worth a visit even if just for a talking point. It is set in a very well kept church which is worth a visit in itself.

The best way to enjoy the Church and grave is to walk the loop going along Baulk Lane and when you have the cricket ground on your left hand side you will see a small gate on your right. Its a reasonable steep walk up but take your time, you will notice when your half way up theres a high... More

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.

Maybe it does lack historical accuracy, but this is a pleasant and peaceful churchyard to visit, easily accessed from Hathersage, and the Robin Hood/Little John legend is popular with kids of all ages. Definitely worth a visit.

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
