Little John's Grave, Hathersage.

Little John was said to have been born in Hathersage, and a long grave in the churchyard of the Church of St Michael is reputed to be his. In a short Pathe News silent film clip from 1928, The Ancient Order of Foresters pay their respects with an annual pilgrimage to the site. See THIS LINK. In 1994 over 1,000 of them would make this same trip.

Went here in May, my second visit and was pleased to see how well tended the grave is. I believe the village is Hathersage though?
