 Yorkshire - Little John Hathersage Sherwood Nottingham Robin Hood Loxley Peak District pictures history
By way of illustration in 1173 AD Robert Fitz Ranulf who was a Sheriff of Nottingham built Beauchief Abbey with its splendid Deer Park.
The Abbey was given over to the White Canons of Welbeck Abbey in Nottinghamshire and later the Abbey Lands including Strawberry Lee came into the possession of Sir Nicholas Strelley whose family were from Nottingham and were the verderer's for Sherwood and Peak Forest.
