|Sherwood Forest world famous for being the hideaway home of medieval folk hero Robin Hood.
It was designated a royal hunting forest following the Norman invasion of the country.
Large sections of the forest were felled in Medieval times, but areas of the forest still survive today, including the Major Oak where Robin Hood is reputed to have made his hideout.
Legend tells that Robin and his band of outlaws hunted the royal deer and robbed "rich" noblemen passing through the forest. They often passed on their booty to the poor residents of the area.
The Major Oak is said to be at least 1000 years and weighs a massive 23 tons. More than 900 of the trees in the park are over 600 years old, and the forest is rich in wildlife.
The intact areas of forest gives a flavour of what our wild forests may have looked like thousands of years ago before farming was introduced.|
