Nottinghamshire is synonymous with Robin Hood. Legend has it that the outlaw was captured by the Sheriff of Nottingham and shackled in the dungeons of Nottingham Castle several times.
One of the places he is said to have been captured is St Mary's Church on the opposite side of the city. While attending mass Robin was spotted by a monk who had previously been robbed by him. The monk reported him and he was dragged off and incarcerated.
There are medieval caves under the Galliers of Justice Museum, opposite St Mary's Church. Here you'll find an oubliette, a very deep dungeon, which would have been used by the Sheriff of Nottingham in the times of Robin Hood.
