Eastwood Rocks, Ashover

By Henrik Thiil Nielsen, 2018-09-29. Revised by Henrik Thiil Nielsen, 2018-09-29.

A local tradition connected Eastwood Rocks near Ashover, Chesterfield, with Robin Hood's Stride, about 13.5 to the west. It was said that Robin Hood and Little John had shot an arrow from Eastwood Rocks to Robin Hood's Stride near Harthill. Little John hit the target, but Robin Hood's arrow fell in the valley below the rocks.

For this tradition see Allusions below. It is possible that the source of this should be dated 1794 rather than 1804. The status "Defunct?" indicated in the info box above refers to the local tradition rather than the rocks or their name.

Every now and then a climber feels the urge to test his skills on these gritstone rocks (see Background below), but they stand on private land and the farmer who owns it is apparently not too happy with the frequent trespassers.Template:PnItemQry
