Trail of Robin of Sherwood - Location Guide: A visual guide to the locations used in the 1980’s television show by Duncan BuckleyHaving always harboured a fascination and passion for medieval architecture, and a lifelong appreciation of the iconic 1980’s television show Robin of Sherwood©, the ‘Trail of Robin of Sherwood’ location guide book was born.
The production teams for the show worked amazing visual magic to bring each location to life, creating just the right blend of medieval atmosphere to enhance the Robin of Sherwood© experience, and it was this fascination that helped to inspire this guide book and our website. Memories of those wonderful locations - the 12th century Norman castles and abbeys, priories and forests - each were seemingly a character themselves in the program, all helping to add that air of mysticism that still haunts the viewer to this day.
Within the pages of this guide, we hope to bring you a comprehensive look at the locations as they are now to help you plan and go on your own location hunts. The feeling of following in the footsteps of the show, seeing the locations with your own eyes, is an exciting experience.
