Important scenes in Walter Scott's Ivanhoe (1820) take place in or near Ashby-de-la-Zouch, Leicestershire. Since Robin Hood and his men feature as important subsidiary characters in this book – which was the first work to make Robin Hood widely known among European and North American readers – the localities in and around Ashby-de-la-Zouch named after Ivanhoe are at least of peripheral interest.

Ivanhoe-related place-names, localities with local traditions, literary locales etc. in or near Ashby-de-la-Zouch (Leicestershire).
