Little John's Grave | Peak District, England


After we left Chatsworth House, we were on a mission. I was determined to find a specific place from a scene in Pride and Prejudice. There's a scene where Lizzy is standing on a peak in the middle of the Peak District. I looked it up and found out it was Stanage Edge and very close to Chatsworth House. I was determined to stand on the same edge as Lizzy because it's one of my favorite scenes. 

While we were driving, we were using the GPS and it told us to drive up and into a small village full of hills. We finally reached the smallest road I've ever seen. We decided that it was the right way and continued onward. Once we reached the end, we quickly realized it was a dead end. 

The tiny road led us to a small church and graveyard. We parked the car to see if we could figure out where we were or how to get to Stanage Edge. Sadly, we realized that we would have to hike about an hour or so to get there. After spending the entire day at Chatsworth, we were all knackered and decided to pass. I was sad, but it was a decision that had to be made. At least, I was able to go to Pemberley!


Ari and I decided to explore a bit and we walked around the graveyard. We kept seeing signs pointing to "Little John's grave". We thought this was interesting, so we followed the signs.
Surely, it couldn't be the grave of Little John from Robin Hood. When we finally reached the tombstone, we found that it was. We called the boys over and we all stood in awe. I'm not sure if it was really his grave, but it was still exciting. Despite not being able to go to Stanage Edge, we were still able to stumble upon something quite cool.
