Loxley (Bramshall).

[[File:|thumb|right|500px|Loxley Hall, Bramshall / Stephen Richards, 21 Aug. 2002, Creative Commons.]]

By Henrik Thiil Nielsen, 2020-10-12. Revised by Henrik Thiil Nielsen, 2020-10-12.

The Sloane MS Life of Robin Hood from c. 1600 connects Robin Hood with a place or an area named Loxley. One of several possibilities is a neighbourhood south-west of Uttoxeter, Staffordshire. The names of several localities here include the element 'Loxley', though none is named 'Loxley' tout court.

About one km south of Bramshall and two km south-west of Uttoxeter lies the early-19th-century country house Loxley Hall,[1] which is now home to Loxley Hall School, a 'special school for children with social, emotional and mental health difficulties with resulting behavioural problems'.[2] South of the hall lie Loxley Park, Lower Loxley, Loxley Bank, Loxley Green, Loxley Green Farm etc. Template:PnItemQry
