Tours > Robin Hood's Nottingham > Steetley Chapel

Steetley Chapel
Just off the A619, two miles west of Worksop (544788)

Steetley Chapel near Worksop A very attractive perfect little Norman church which really takes you back to the days of Robin Hood. This is one of the few buildings in the Sherwood area which date to this time. Tradition has Friar Tuck bringing the Merry Men here for prayers on occasion and it is said to have had a false roof in which Robin could hide when the need arose.

Steetley is also Papplewick's rival for the claim of being the church where Alan-a-Dale was married. The minstrels' lover was to be married, in the chapel, to an elderly nobleman of her parents' choosing, until Robin stepped in and rescued her. She was instantly wedded to Alan instead.

Robin Hood is said, by some, to be buried at the farm next door.
