Nottinghamshire County Council - Proud of our past, ambitious for our future

Robin Hood

Robin Hood is Nottinghamshire's most famous son who took from the rich and gave to the poor. He tricked and outwitted the evil Sheriff of Nottingham, turning the tables on corrupt churchmen and officials who abused their power at the expense of the poor.

You can see Robin's hideout - the famous Major Oak tree - in Sherwood Forest.
