Ivanhoe House (Smisby) place-name cluster
By Henrik Thiil Nielsen, 2017-05-08. Revised by Henrik Thiil Nielsen, 2018-11-25.
Important scenes in Walter Scott's Ivanhoe (1820) take place in or near Ashby-de-la-Zouch, Leicestershire. Since Robin Hood and his men feature as important subsidiary characters in this book – which was the first work to make Robin Hood widely known among European and North American readers – the localities in and around Ashby-de-la-Zouch named after Ivanhoe are at least of peripheral interest.
Ivanhoe-related place-names, localities with local traditions, literary locales etc. in or near Ivanhoe House, Smisby, Leicestershire.
