The Outlaw, the Shoemaker and his Apprentice in Nottingham
ACTive - Press Release 15th October 2017Download File
How does Robin Hood keep the Sheriff on his toes? A good pair of boots. All that hi-jinks takes it toll on the shoe leather. Robin Hood’s boots were worn out. Should he spend his loot on new boots or revive the worn out but worn in and comfy old ones?
The Outlaw (Adam Greenwood) of Robin Hood Legacy - Robin Hood Experience of Friar Lane, Nottingham, came to collect his favourite boots from Nottingham’s English Shoe Maker, Peter Bullock of Peter’s Shoes which were beautifully restored, heeled and soled by the Shoemaker and his Apprentice, Lilly Deeming. (Photo 1) Afterwards the Outlaw couldn’t wait to show his Maid Marian (Lisette Sorenson) the restored boots at his base camp hideout owned by Robin’s alter-ego local businessman Adam Greenwood, on Friar Lane, The Robin Hood Experience. (Photo 2) The Peter explained how he restored them, much to their delight and amazement! “I loved those boots”, Adam said, “I thought I would never be able to wear my favourite boots again. Robin Hood is in my soul… and I now realise, in my soles!”
