Robin Hood's Chair.
Robin Hood's Chair / S. Clements).

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

Robin Hood's Chair is a rock located about 100 m due south of Robin Hood's Hills in Kirkby Forest, not quite 3 km SSE of Kirkby in Ashfield, Nottinghamshire, an area that was once part of Sherrwood Forest. About 640 m SW of these two localities is Robin Hood's Cave. Some 1.25 km SSW of them, just east of Annesley, was the Robin Hood public house. Robin Hood's Chair, it would seem, was rediscovered on 22 April 1917 by a Mr J.H. Pointon of Hucknall.[1]

The name "Robin Hood's Chair" is first recorded on John Chapman's map of Nottinghamshire, surveyed 1774 and published 1776.[2]
