Robin Hood statue, most famous Robin Hood statue.


Above: Short silent newsreel clip showing the unveiling of the Robin Hood Statue and wall plaques on Nottingham Castle Green. Outside the known to be cursed Nottingham Castle Gate House, on Castle Green, stands the most famous statue of Robin Hood. James Woodford's statue was sculpted in 1952 and presented to the city by a local businessman.
It is surrounded by small studies of Little John, Friar Tuck, Alan A Dale and Will Scarlet, whilst wall plaques illustrate various scenes from the legend of Robin Hood and his Merry Men.

Robin Hood.
This Robin Hood statue, Nottingham Castle, is without doubt my least favourite of the statues pictured across these three websites.

Thanks for the input guys.

If you would like a link to your site placed on the main page then all I ask is that you reciprocate in kind. The ONLY person who's taken me up on that offer so far is Ben Turner. But I'm always willing to do mutual links.
