Trail of robin of sherwood
Trail of Robin of Sherwood - Location Guide: A visual guide to the locations used in the 1980’s television show by Duncan BuckleyHaving always harboured a fascination and passion for medieval architecture, and a lifelong appreciation of the iconic 1980’s television show Robin of Sherwood©, the ‘Trail of Robin of Sherwood’ location guide book was born.
The production teams for the show worked amazing visual magic to bring each location to life, creating just the right blend of medieval atmosphere to enhance the Robin of Sherwood© experience, and it was this fascination that helped to inspire this guide book and our website. Memories of those wonderful locations - the 12th century Norman castles and abbeys, priories and forests - each were seemingly a character themselves in the program, all helping to add that air of mysticism that still haunts the viewer to this day.
Within the pages of this guide, we hope to bring you a comprehensive look at the locations as they are now to help you plan and go on your own location hunts. The feeling of following in the footsteps of the show, seeing the locations with your own eyes, is an exciting experience.
Trail of Robin of Sherwood is Closing Down
Apart from being a fabulous example of a Norman Castle, with plenty to see and do for a visiting family, for those interesested this was also a major filming location for the 's television show 'Robin of Sherwood'. The ruins left standing are still instantly recognisable from the various episodes filmed there from all the series. The Keep ruin, standing majestically in the centre, is beautiful and visiting Robin of Sherwood fans may still remember the Simon de Belleme character standing framed in the doorway. If you're a fan of 'Robin of Sherwood', rekindling your memories of the show, this is definitely a location to add to your list of all the many accessible locations around the UK many listed on the Trail of Robin of Sherwood website. Medieval architecture doesn't get much better than this. I think both sites could improve by providing more information about the history of the monuments - audio tours or interactive displays etc. Lovely Castle big bold and old, lots of history here for you to explore and you will meet the most friendliest staff in the world who help you with the history and directions.

From ghostly encounters to priories and snowdrops
Modern Newark seems an unlikely place to find a bona fide connection with Robin Hood, garlanded as it is with power cables and pylons. Sites are listed: Newark, Nottingham, Southwell and so on, and at each a Sean Bean soundalike links the site, sometimes tenuously, to Robin Hood, quotes from a ballad or two and recommends other local attractions this last is useful. Newark Castle was a surprise. Probably not he had just lost the coronation regalia in the Wash and gorged himself on peaches and new cider, not an ideal diet for someone who already has dysentery but to enjoy this tour, you must suspend belief. Newark Castle looks the part and the gatehouse in the 10ft-thick walls, through which John would have arrived, is satisfyingly rugged. Enjoy England Awards: Forde Abbey.
