Sherwood Forest is a Royal Forest in Nottinghamshire, England, famous through its historical association with the legend of Robin Hood.

Continuously forested since the end of the Ice Age (as attested by pollen sampling cores), Sherwood Forest National Nature Reserve today encompasses 423.2 hectares, (1,045 acres) surrounding the village of Edwinstowe, the site of Thoresby Hall.

The forest that most people associate as Sherwood Forest is actually named Birklands and Bilhaugh, and is a remnant of an older and much larger royal hunting forest, which derived its name from its status as the shire (or sher) wood of Nottinghamshire (in Domesday, the forest covered perhaps a quarter of Nottinghamshire, in woodland and heath subject to the forest laws) which in fact extended into several neighbouring counties (shires), bordered on the west along the River Erewash and the Forest of East Derbyshire.

Sherwood Forest is home to the famous Major Oak, which, according to local folklore, was Robin Hood's principal hideout. The oak tree is between 800 and 1,000 years old and, since the Victorian era, its massive limbs have been partially supported by an elaborate system of scaffolding. In February 1998, a local company took cuttings from the Major Oak and began cultivating clones of the famous tree with the intention of sending saplings to be planted in major cities around the world.

Welcome to

I am not currently available for contract work.

I am next available from Monday 29th September 2014.

I am a Microsoft Access and Excel VBA developer with over 10 years experience in designing and developing software solutions. In addition as you will see from my CV I do Microsoft Access with Excel, SQL Server and possibly Sharepoint if required. I am working on an agency contract at present but when I am available I would aim to work on site within commuting distance of B79 0NH - roughly Birmingham, Nottingham, Derby, Leicester and Coventry.

Hope this helps! Have a good day.
