Sherwood Forest

The forest as it exists today is roughly 20 miles long and 8 miles wide,
but only in patches.  It was once much larger and denser.

                      

The great oak trail is roughly a mile long and passes some of the largest trees in the forest.

                      

These forest giants are known to live 600 years,
and sometimes have strange shapes due to local fungus.

                

The largest tree in the forest today is believed to be Major Oak,
an especially large tree about 800 years old. 

              

Local legend says this is the very tree
Robin Hood held court under some 800 years ago.

                   

 Obviously this tree would have been a sapling at the most in his day. 
Nevertheless, it is easy to picture those merry men gathered under this shade.
