Welcome to Sherwoodsecrets. We hope you enjoy your visit.

King Richard ‘The Lion heart’ is dead and England suffered greatly in the wake of the crusade. The throne sat vacant, and all of England waited with anticipation for the next King of England to rise. The lands were in turmoil and times were hard. Yet none suffered so greatly as the shire of Nottingham. Their saviour, ‘Robin Hood’ and his most loyal friends have long since died, which left the people of Nottinghamshire to fend for themselves against harsh and cruel Lords. The Sheriffs death was still talked about among the poor folk, the last thing that Robin Hood gave them, their freedom from persecution against the harsh man that ruled Nottingham.

Yet hope remained!

Deep in the heart of Sherwood Forest a secret hid, a secret that bought the people hope once again. Robin Hood may be dead, but his legacy lived on. It was rumored that there remained a few, outlawed and banished, that dwelled within the boughs and strove to keep the legend of Robin Hood alive. Biding their time, preparing for that final battle to free Nottinghamshire once and for all! Only time would tell if ‘Robin Hood’ and everything he stood for lived on in the new generation!

But now, two years on, times were changing. The scent of succession grew strong upon the wind. Rumors were abound that a legitimate heir to the throne had been found. Somewhere in the holy lands a son of the late King Richard dwelled unknown and unknowing of the fate that awaits him. Youth sheltered him from the harsh realities of the world, as a dedicated group of men put every effort into making the boy obscure. But the secret became public and excitement thrummed through the country. Excitement and anger! For there were still those that benefitted greatly from the throne lying empty! Those that had pledged allegiance to the throne of England and its rightful ruler fought bravely against those willing to sacrifice the boy. And those that fought to keep a King on the throne were also those that had fought to keep Nottingham safe. Their Quest was an important one, one that saw the rise of not only Nottingham, but the entire country, and so they abandoned the internal wars that forever waged within the cities and towns of England, leaving them once more open and vulnerable to the harsh justice of the rich and powerful. Towns became ravaged with greed, the poor suffered greatly, and even those nobles with gentle dispositions felt the need to flee for their own safety. However, two years have passed since and those that sought to place the boy upon the throne, to save England, now returned with no head to wear the crown. Was their quest all for naught? Did they sacrifice their home, friends and family on a fool’s errand? Or is the secret of who the Boy King is still at large?

The North Road

This is the main road around these parts. It connects York and Nottingham, along with other major towns and is frequently travelled. It is also an ideal haunt for outlaws, thieves and pick pockets to prey upon the unwary traveller and relieve them of their purse before they enter the walls of Nottingham. Money can buy guards to escort through the dangerous forest road, but many don’t believe themselves in danger.

Outlaws Camp

Buried deep in Sherwood Forest is what has been christened the ‘outlaws camp’. Those that have been branded an outlaw seek refuge here. It is a fairly large area, but very well hidden. It is situated a fait ways back from the North Road, so as not to be easily found. It is nestled in a crevice, tall rocks on either side. Those that have habituated the area have done as much as possible to make the place liveable. Bunks are tucked away where they sleep, a large camp fire has been made in the middle for cooking, warmth and light. There is also various nearby caves that are ideal for storage of food and other things.

Old Oak Falls

Where the forest opens up into one of the larger clearings stands the ‘Old Oak’. Reputed to be the main hide-out of Robin Hood himself, it has become a bit of an iconic place for those that strive to carry on the work that he has started. It is almost a place of reverence as those wishing to rid the land of evil seek signs from the great legend himself. Nearby the roar of a waterfall can be heard, and but a few paces away a beautiful ‘pool’ has formed at the base of the waterfall. The fall is fed by the nearby River Erewash, a smaller fork of the river meandering through the forest. The falls are not massive, in-fact they provide an ideal ‘washing’ area.

The Forest

Any area that is beyond the road or the camp and all in-between. Its dense coverage is provided by many oaks and birch. Yet not all the area is covered with trees. There are many open glades that in the summer months are carpeted with heather and blue-bells. Small meadows also intersperse the mass of trees that make up the majority of the forest. Small brooks cut through the land as well as many animal trails that can be used to the advantage of any whom live within the forest.
