Sherwood Forest!

The Major Oak
Spotted Robin and Marion!!

One weekend in July I flew to UK for the wedding of Hannah and Markus in Worksop which is close to Nottingham. The day after the wedding I went with Cristine, Jane and David who were also staying at the same B&B as me to Sherwood Forest. They were leaving later on that day so we had time to do a bit of exploring in the area. The adventure already started in the taxi we took to get to the visitor centre as she had no idea where it was! Rather strange since she was from that area and it is a big tourist

Once were we had a quick look at the visitor centre and then decided to walk to see the Major Oak, it was quite busy with lots of families enjoying themselves. We saw lots of interesting trees shapes and sizes, like the huge tree trunk in the 2nd photo.

The major oak was huge and very impressive, needed to be held up. There was an information board about who was Robin Hood and was he a real person, also about the actual tree, and about Sherwood forest.

There were also many small sculptures dotted throughout the forest, afterwards we headed to the village of Edwinstowe home of the actual man himself, Robin Hood! We had a lovely lunch in one of many pubs and then took a taxi back to the B&B.
It was a great weekend and a post of the wedding is still to come! Keep looking!
