Is Sherwood Forest near Nottingham?
Yes it is just to the north of Nottingham, England.
The Nottingham Forest mascot was originally 'Nutty the Squirrel' (who wore a Robin Hood-style hat) before being replaced with 'Sherwood Bear'. Robin Hood became the club's third mascot at the beginning of the 2007/08 season. In their 150th anniversary season 2015/16 they reverted by to the much loved Sherwood Bear, albeit with something of a makeover.
