Sherwood Avenue in Blidworth perhaps simply owes its name to is proximity to one of the few remaining areas of the original forest, but given the fact that a side-street is named Robin Hood Road and in view of some townspeople's apparent belief that Will Scarlet lies buried at some unknown spot in the local graveyard, it seems far from impossible that the name was chosen, at least in part, to strengthen the Robin Hood-connections of this little town.
