Blidworth is a small village approximately five miles east of Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, England. Its history can be traced back to the 10th century, although many of the current houses were built in the first half of the 20th century to provide housing for workers at Blidworth Colliery (1926-1989).Domesday Book EntryThe first recorded reference of Blidworth was in the Domesday Book, a national survey which was executed for William I of England in 1086. It is recorded as Blideworde, its recorded population was five households and the total tax assessed was 1.1 Geld UnitsAlthough this is the first recorded reference of Blidworth, the village is much older and was possibly used by the Romans.Robin Hood linksAccording to legend, Will Scarlet is buried in the churchyard of the Church of St. Mary of the Purification. An unmarked grave stands near the iron gates of the churchyard, formed from the original apex of the church tower and other assorted stones, and is generally attributed to the outlaw. As outlaws were not generally buried in churchyards, though, it is more likely that, if he existed, Will Scarlet was buried in one of the much older graves to be found on the same hillside within the boundaries of Sherwood Forest.Other local legends suggest that Blidworth was the birthplace of Maid Marian, although there is little or no evidence to support these claims.The Druid StoneOn the outskirts of the village of Blidworth, on farmlands, lies a stone known locally as the Druid Stone, a pillar of cemented glacial gravel standing on a base of the Nottingham Castle rock formation . This monumental object is 14ft high, 84ft around the base and has a hollow centre large enough for a man to pass through.Use our United Kingdom (UK) itinerary planner to arrange the hows, wheres, and whens of your trip to Blidworth.
