A coloured drawing of [[Robin Hood's Stride (Harthill)|Robin Hood's Stride]] in a manuscript in the collection of archery-related literature, prints and drawings of the famous English naturalist, botanist (and archer) Joseph Banks (1743–1820) is accompanied by this note:

The manuscript includes at least two drawings of the Stride, dated 1794 and 1804 respectively. I do not know which of them has the above note, so the date could be 1794 rather than 1804 as entered in the info box above. The status "Defunct?" indicated there refers to the local tradition and not, of course, to the rocks or their name.

Eastwood Rocks, Ashover

By Henrik Thiil Nielsen, 2018-09-29. Revised by Henrik Thiil Nielsen, 2021-02-12.

A local tradition connected Eastwood Rocks near Ashover, Chesterfield, with Robin Hood's Stride, about 13.5 km 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 the allusion cited below, which should possibly be dated 1794 rather than 1804.[2] The status "Defunct?" indicated in the info box 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 trespassing.
