Robin Hood's Chair.
Robin Hood's Cave is hidden somewhere under the bracken (photo by Rob Howl, from Panoramio – no longer online).

By Henrik Thiil Nielsen, 2016-10-04. Revised by Henrik Thiil Nielsen, 2019-06-01.

Now said to be below ground,[1] Robin Hood's Cave was (is) located by a path immediately east of Derby Road, some 1.5 km SSE of central Kirkby in Ashfield. About 700 m NE of the site of the cave are found Robin Hood's Hills and Robin Hood's Chair, while the Robin Hood, a public house, could once be frequented about 600 m S of the Cave, just south of Annesley at what was then a crossroads but is now the corner of Derby Road and Forest Road. The earliest source for this place-name would seem to be an O.S. map from c. 1825.[2]
