We visited on the final day of The Robin Hood Festival we weren't disappointed! The lovely ladies that volunteer their time to greet visitors and offer refreshments made our visit more special. Will definitely be returning at Christmas for the Christmas Tree display!

As churches go, it's nothing out of the ordinary, just a nice church. It's the site of the supposed marriage of Robin Hood and Maid Marion.

Supposedly the church where Robin Hood and Maid Marian were married. Could'nt see inside as it was closed, even though it was a Sunday. Interesting old grave yard to stroll around.

Robin Hood and Maid Marion are supposed to have married here in this church. Beautiful if you like looking round very old buildings. We found it lovely and with the legend very romantic. Church is still in use today.
