Lovely location with stunning views
ago. de 2021 • Pareja
Located in a lovely little church (Hathersage Parish Church) with stunning views .. always nice to stumble on interesting things when venturing out n about. Ps... put a fiver in the parking Meter by the grave for upkeep and it plays Bryan Adams... unless that was just the gardener singing while working ...

Worth popping to see if you’re in Hathersage
jul. de 2021 • Amigos
After a long ramble around the countryside around Hathersage we visited the church. Just across from the main entrance you will see the grave of Little John- one of Robin Hood’s Merry Men.
According to records they excavated the grave and discovered a skeleton 7 feet tall. I’ve also read an ancient longbow and cap were inside the church up until the 19th Century. Worth a visit if you’re exploring the area.

A good walk and well-kept grave
jul. de 2021
The Order of Foresters ensure this grave is well looked after.
Obviously, there is significant doubt as to whether or not Little John ever existed, let alone if this is his grave, but there's no harm done, and it helps the tourist industry a little.
We walked up the hill and can testify to it's steepness, but the plus side is the beautiful views.

Worth a look

The church is up a very steep hill, but there is a car park at the church. Just hope you don’t meet a car coming the other way!!!
A pretty church and well cared for graveyard. The Little John grave is signposted if you look carefully.
Just as curious is the parking meter near his grave “for donations”

Nicely presented

Nicely presented and well cared for. Head and foot stones plus a more modern memorial stone. Myth or legend worth visiting one of the physical points of the Robin Hood fable. The churchyard is up a steep hill north of Hathersage

It’s a grave

Call me a sceptic but is this really the grave of a man invented for a story or is it a very tall man and fits the need for something else to look at a beautiful village.
I convinced my wife who finds hills difficult that this tourist attraction was not far from our hotel. As you can see I am writing this review so I must have lived, though I don’t know how.
Our short walk was up a very steep hill, through a fabulous looking lychgate and past family graves worth more careful examination.
Not far into the graveyard is Little John’s grave cared for by the foresters and spookily with what looks like a parking meter next to it for donations.
Not to be missed 😂

Myth or Legend
ago. de 2020
Intrigued by this grave and as our hotel had a signpost stating it was just a 1/3 of a mile away we felt we had to have a look. It was situated up a steep hill in a small churchyard.
Now to think this grave has to be some 700 years old and the whole Robin Hood story is something we know primarily through Disney, sceptics may say there is no way this can be the grave of Little John, but apparently they excavated the site in 1784 and the thigh bone was 30 inches long and this would mean that whoever's grave this was the person who lies here would be about 8 foot tall!

We were surprised to see Little John’s Grave in Hathersage church yard. It is beautifully maintained and an interesting link to History/myth.

Nothing spectacular
dic. de 2019
Easy to find once you make your way up the steep hill to the churchyard as very well signposted. But to be frank the grave itself was an anti-climax. The headstone appears much more modern than surrounding ones (appreciate there would have had to be a big element of restoration) but this just took away from the authenticity. The headstone mentions being under a yew tree whereas this appeared to be a large conifer (??). The church itself is impressive and the grounds very well kept - great views as well. But as this review is for 'Little John's Grave' it has to be average....
