‘In Search of Robin Hood’ Walks

by | 11 May 2022 | Heritage, Hobbies, Sherwood, Walking

On behalf of the Robin Hood Way Association, experienced walks leader Chris Thompson is inviting Notts people to get outdoors and explore on a series of free walks.  

Chris’ walks, ‘In search of Robin Hood’, give a short taster of the Robin Hood Way  – a popular long-distance pathway, which runs from Nottingham Castle to St Mary’s Church Edwinstowe, where the famous outlaw is said to have married his sweetheart Maid Marian. The full trail is 105 miles long and was first created back in the 1980s.

Chris said: “During the Covid ‘Lockdowns’ we all realised how much good it does us to be outdoors, enjoying fresh air and exercise. Walking is the easiest and cheapest form of exercise – no gym fees, no expensive equipment needed, just a stout pair of shoes and a waterproof.”

Chris urges anyone who has suffered loneliness, or just wants to get some healthy outdoor exercise, to give walking a try: “Guided walks in particular are a great way to meet like-minded people and make new friends. They’re ideal for anyone who isn’t confident with their map reading, or doesn’t feel at ease going out on their own.”

The walks are scheduled for the following Saturdays; 14th May, 18th June, 30th July and 24th September.

All the walks are free. They will start from St Mary’s Parish Church, Edwinstowe NG21 9QA at 1.00pm; please reserve your place with Chris on 07719 827808 or nottsrow15@outlook.com.
