About Robin Hood's Stride

Robin Hood's Stride is a rocky outcrop overlooking the pretty village of Elton, in Derbyshire. By tradition the sole province of Robin Hood is known to have been Sherwood Forest so it is interesting that both he and Little John feature in the romantic legends of the Peaks.

The region is popular with walkers, the stride consists mainly of three rock outcrops beneath which lies the hermit's Cave with its carved Crucifix.

Walkers who reach Robin Hood's Stride are rewarded with outstanding views across the rolling countryside of the Peak District and some of the prettiest villages in Derbyshire.
