ABOUT SHERWOOD FOREST
Sherwood Forest, the legendary stomping-ground of Robin Hood, is a 450 acre country park in Nottinghamshire. Managed by an RSPB led consortium in partnership with the County Council, the park is home to the Sherwood Forest National Nature Reserve and is designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest. The forest has 900 veteran oak trees including England’s Tree of the Year 2014, The Major Oak.
Open every day except Christmas Day, the forest has something for everyone – walks and trails, bug hunts, adventure playground, events – there’s always plenty to enjoy.
LIVING IN SHERWOOD FOREST
We’re all familiar with one of Nottinghamshire’s most loved attractions, but did you know Sherwood Forest is thought to have once had 100 times more tree cover than it does today?
Sherwood Forest Country Park is just north of Edwinstowe and around two miles from Ollerton in an area which originally held the Viking name ‘Birklands’.
Parts of the historic forest also had to give way to developments – such as Thoresby Colliery being sunk in the 1920s – and meant the forest shrunk from occupying more than a fifth of land making up Nottinghamshire.
