The Famous Sycamore Gap Tree from Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves Has Been Cut Down

Sycamore Gap Tree Robin Hood

Remember the tree the young boy, Wulf took refuge in at the beginning of Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves? Well it was cut down by some despicable lowlife last night!

The iconic Sycamore Gap Tree was located right next to the historic Hadrian’s Wall near Crag Lough in Northumberland, UK.

The Sycamore tree that was reportedly over 200 years old sat in a dramatic dip in the landscape and was described as “one of the most photographed trees in the country”.

Known also as “The Robin Hood Tree” because of its use in the beloved 1991 movie Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, the iconic tree can also be seen in the music video for Bryan Adams’ hit song from the film, “(Everything I Do) I Do It For You”.

According to Sky News “A full police investigation has been launched after the tree was felled overnight in what officers believe to be a deliberate act of vandalism.”

My brain goes numb trying to comprehend why someone would do something like this. I only hope the disgusting scumbag tells someone about it and they grass them up!

If you have any information on this please tell your local authorities.

**EDIT: Police have since made four arrests linked to the case. A 16 year old boy was arrested and then released within 24 hours of the tree being felled, and a man in his 60s was also later arrested on suspicion of cutting down the tree. As of November 2023 a further two arrests have been made (two men in their 30s).
