    The Poet and the 1662 boundary route of Sherwood Forest

    In the first of a special two part blog, Dave Wood, Nottinghamshire poet, explains why he has spent the past few weeks on a walk around Sherwood Forest’s boundaries, last outlined in 1662:

    In October 2010, I went to a talk in Beeston library by Peter Lester of the Nottinghamshire Archives about the county in the mediaeval era.  He briefly mentioned the Perambulations of Sherwood Forest, last done in 1662 as a way of marking out the boundaries of the forest.

    Nottingham is host to many great venues, including the Theatre Royal who this year hosts Sleeping Beauty starring Joe Pasquale. Nottingham Arts Theatre will be performing Aladdin and his wonderful lamp, whilst at Nottingham Playhouse you’ll get the chance to see Cinderella.

    Cinderella is a classic fairy tale with some very memorable hooks  – the ugly sisters, the fairy godmother,  a touch of magic and a missing shoe.  This performance is written by the acclaimed Kenneth Alan Taylor and stars

Birds, herds and beautiful scenery was the focus on my Wildlife Photography Course at Sherwood Hideaway

When I was asked to spend my weekend at Sherwood Hideaway to take part in wildlife activities available there, of course I was only too happy to oblige.
