Archer Road is one of a dozen residential streets in St Mary Cray (formerly a parish in Kent, now part of the London Borough of Bromley) whose names were more or less certainly inspired by that of a small wood that existed in this area before urbanization kicked in: Robin Hood Shaw. That the name 'Archer Road' is part of a Robin Hood-theme is suggested by the names of other streets in this area. See further the page on the St Mary Cray place-name cluster.
