Sherwood Forest Visiting The Major Oak

Now I’ve never visited the Major Oak which is meant to be the tree Robin Hood his in or something like that.Truth is it wouldn’t have even been a sapling when he was allegedly around but myths become legend and become ingrained in folk law.There is always perhaps a grain of truth in these things sometimes there are more grains of truth.I mean without it we wouldn’t have had Bryan Adams clinging onto the top spot for what seemed like 20 years with “Everything I do for you “ and Bryan we salute you.Bryan Adams however was not around when I visited Sherwood Forest with my husband and son back from university.

Sherwood Forest is a 450 acre nature reserve and is home to the well loved Major Oak as mentioned earlier.You need to visit this nature reserve and be part of the Robin Hood legend , it costs £4 to park at the Nature reserve ensure you have to correct change though as cards are not accepted at the car park payment machines.There is a RSPB cebtre there complete with cafe , shop and toilets etc.Also nearby is a lovely craft complex complete with another cafe.

And a direct quote from Mr T “This is the first time I’ve been to see the Major Oak, so was quite excited to visit this legend landmark of Nottinghamshire. I’m a big Robin Hood fan and was looking forward to learning more. There’s lots of information here from the original name of the oak “Cock pen oak” to becoming the “Major’s Oak” to finally becoming to World famous “Major Oak”. There are lots of walks around the forest of various distances to suit your needs. “
