Tours > Robin Hood's Yorkshire > Campsall Church

Campsall Church
Seven miles north-west of Doncaster, West Riding (544141)

Campsall Church is very ancient and reputed to be the place where Robin and Marian were married. Near the end of the Geste, Robin begs the King to allow him to return to the north to pray at the chapel of St. Mary Magdalen in Barnsdale. The Cluniac priory of Monk Bretton, near Robin Hood's Well, is dedicated to that saint, as too was Campsall and one of the chantry chapels in Wakefield. The Magdalen cult was strongly involved with the legends of the Holy Grail, the Merovingian royal family in France, Knights Templar and the medieval Cathar heresy, although it is not certain whether any of these influences had found their way into the English Church.
