Blidworth Boundary Stone:

blidworth boundry stone




The stone is post ...medieval, dating to the 18th century. It is included here as a curiosity of Sherwood Forest, but also because it was erected along with many others (now gone) to mark the division of a medieval wood known as Balkhaw between the two parishes.

St Mary of the Purification - Blidworth Parish Church

Taken in 1890 Rev R.H. Whitworth standing in the churchyard of Blidworth Parish church.



A model of the original church.

The model sits in the grave yard near the entrance to the existing church







Druid Stone

On the outskirts of Blidworth not too far from the church sits a large holed stone known locally as the Druid Stone or the Blidworth Boulder.

No one knows for certain if Druids ever worshiped in this area. The stone as we see it today dates back several centuries and it was created thousands of years ago.

The 14 ft high Stone is situated on private land and is in the corner of a field. A public footpath is adjacent to the field and the stone is best viewed from higher ground along the footpath to the west.
