Heart of Sherwood Forest map
This is the historic heart of the Forest with the National Nature Reserve based on the royal wood of Birklands and Budby Forest. Nearby Kings Clipstone is the ‘Royal Heart of Ancient Sherwood Forest’ with the remains of King John’s Palace and the Royal Hunting Park . With its country parks and small towns the ‘Heart of Sherwood Forest’ has a very different feel to the Dukeries.
You can lose yourself for a day exploring very extensive network of paths and tracks taking you away from roads, to enjoy the countryside and get the true feel of Sherwood.
