Sherwood Forest, the legendary home of ‘Robin Hood and his Merry Men’ is now a national nature reserve and contains some of the oldest trees in Europe and the world famous Major Oak still stands after 800 years in the heart of the forest and is still producing acorns. How’s that for living history! The woodland is teeming with wildlife and features Hebridean sheep and Dexter cattle grazing in the open areas of the heathland, follow the nature trails, browse the visitor’s centre and shop and have a relaxing meal in the restaurant.
Set in 270 acres of parkland, the National Water Sports Centre at Holme Pierrepont is home to an international 2,000 metre regatta course, man-made white water slalom and waterski lagoon. There are a wide range of water activities suitable for all levels of abilities, with professional guidance and tuition available.
The area which now makes up Nottingham city centre was once known as Tiggua Cobaucc which means ‘Place of Caves’ Enter and explore a whole new world in the caves underneath the city and descend into the dark depths of the original Anglo-Saxon tunnels, meeting real cave-dwellers from its dramatic hidden past. The caves have been used and adapted over the Centuries by local people to escape and take refuge from the world above. It makes an interesting change from going shopping in a city.
A waterside walk is the perfect way to pass an afternoon, and to explore the villages along the county’s rivers and canals. West Stockwith, the county’s most northerly outpost, was a busy little inland port in the canal era, the modern marina is now a centre for leisure and the Chesterfield Canal is popular with walkers.
