We the undersigned petition the council to reject plans to develop the area surrounding Robin Hood's grave in Calderdale into industrial units. Moreover to ask that the Council considers improving access to the area to encourage international tourism and bring visitors and money to our region.
Robin Hood is an internationally renowned folk hero loved the world over by movie and television fans, and academics.
Apart from two medieval manuscripts locked away in archives, there are very few tangible relics of Robin Hood in existence. As he is one of England's foremost national heroes, the destruction of the grave site would be a loss to the local community, a loss for local heritage, and ultimately, a loss to the international community.
The Gravestone reads:
HERE UNDERNEATH THIS LITTLE STONE
LIES ROBERT, EARL OF HUNTINGTON
NEVER ARCHER WERE AS HE SO GOOD
AND PEOPLE CALLED HIM ROBIN HOOD
SUCH OUTLAWS AS HE AND HIS MEN
WILL ENGLAND NEVER SEE AGAIN
OBIT: 24 DECEMBER 1247AD
