Anonymous. Robin Hood's Larder, Sherwood Forest. [s.l.]: [s.n.], [s.d.]. Photographic postcard (col.) 137 x 87 mm. (private collection.)

By Henrik Thiil Nielsen, 2016-05-18. Revised by Henrik Thiil Nielsen, 2018-02-17.

Robin Hood's Larder was a large oak tree in an area of Sherwood Foest called Birklands, near the village of Edwinstowe. Robin Hood and his men were said to have hung venison from wooden hooks on this tree, whence also its alternative names of The Shambles and Shambles Oak.[1] Robin Hood's Larder stood about 1 km to the west of the Major Oak, another ancient oak, still standing, that has been connected with the outlaw. So far the earliest source I have found for the place-name is the 6" O.S. map of the area published in 1884 (see Maps section below).
