Thieves Wood and Harlow Wood

May 5, 2012

Thieves Wood and Harlow Wood just south of Mansfield is part of the old Royal Wood of Lyndhurst, although mainly Forestry Commission plantations. It is  a popular place for quiet walks and cycling. The woods extent past Fountain Dale with its Friar Tuck legends along Rainworth Water to the L lakes at Rainworth, where eccentric local ornithologist Joseph Whitaker lived at Rainworth Lodge.
