Although it is unlikely that Robin Hood (if he existed) ever visited the bay named after him, there is a legend that he saved the fishing people in the village from having their boats stolen by French pirates. The pirates are supposed to have surrendered to Robin Hood, and he returned all that had been stolen to the poor people of what is now Robin Hood’s Bay, in Yorkshire. The winding streets in the village may have been designed to help smugglers escape from the excise men, as there is a history of smuggling in the area and tales of underground passageways connecting houses. Today, the main source of income for the village is tourism, with fossil hunters among others combing the beach.
