5/144 Robin Hood and
Little John stones
Two field boundary stones. Probably C19, replacing earlier stones.
Roughly tooled gritstone. Stones, approximately 0.6 metre high, consisting
of cylindrical columns with circular flat caps. Cap rims inscribed: ROBIN
HOOD CLOSE and LITTLE JOHN CLOSE respectively. The field names thus
designated are said to derive from a legendary archery contest between
Robin Hood and Little John. However, it is also thought that the name
Robin Hood is a corruption of the hobgoblin, Robin Goodfellow. Included
for historical interest. S.White, Standing Stones and Earthworks on the
North York Moors, 1987; p.45.
