Robin Hood Hill

The Robin Hood Hill gallery is part of a wider project to document aspects of the Newark and Sherwood landscape. I feel that it is important to be able to represent the local area through photography as well as the better known or more iconic locations across the UK.

The project is loosely structured around the Robin Hood Way, a network of more than 100 miles of footpaths connecting Nottingham City Centre and Mansfield to Sherwood Forest. The Nottingham route has 18 sections together with 14 additional circular walks all described by the Robin Hood Way Association in the Robin Hood Way, 4th Edition (revised 2012). Many of these cross the Newark & Sherwood District of Nottinghamshire including circular walk 6, the Robin Hood Hill Walk.

Walking the paths, finding compositions, visiting at different times of year and in different lighting conditions, is all part of the project that is likely to take a number of years. In this context, the Robin Hood Hill gallery is one example of the work that is currently in progress.
