And The Sheriff of Nottingham came from Barnsley?
Suppose next someone will say Geoffrey Boycott came from Lancashire.
Leave the Notts list having its County hero as Robin of Shirewood, even if
he was probably nothing more than several people and a legend to boot.

Everybody knows that Robin Hood was a Yorkshireman and that his
sphere of operation was not Sherwood but the Forest of Barnsdale which
once lay between Wakefield and Doncaster.
Nottinghamshire stole him!
