St Michael and All Angel’s church

Another set of photos from Hathersage today but these are all of (and in the grounds of) St Michael and All Angel’s Church.

The church dates to the 14th century and sits on a hill just outside the centre of the village. Perhaps its main claim to fame is that the graveyard contains the alleged grave of Little John, companion of Robin Hood. His grave is Surrounded by a small iron fence and is notably long. Close by an old-fashioned coin parking meter is embedded in the earth to collect donations for the upkeep of the churchyard.

Sadly, my roll of film ran out before I had chance to photograph the grave, but you can see a picture on the Wikipedia page for the church and also for Little John himself.
