Tours > Robin Hood's Yorkshire > Scarborough

Scarborough
Forty-two miles north-east of York, North Riding

Scarborough Castle Scarborough is mentioned in a ballad, the Noble Fisherman, and tells how Robin went to sea under the alias Simon. Robin proves a very incompetent sailor, but redeems himself when his skill with the long bow saves himself and the crew from capture by French pirates. He hauls in a reward of twelve thousand pounds which he, shares all round. Robin will have been aware of the grim Norman keep above the little harbour town, where Piers Gaveston, King Edward II's favourite, sought sanctuary before he was captured and executed by the English barons.
