The Robin Hood.
Here once was a Robin Hood pub / Google Earth Street View.

There apparently once was a public house named the Robin Hood on the north side of what is now called Rodger Street, just west of Rotherham. This spot is labelled "Robin Hood" on the 6" O.S. map of the area published in 1854, based on surveying carried out in 1850-51 (see Maps section below). Public houses usually have "(P.H.)" after their name on the 6" O.S. maps unless the nature of the establishment is obvious from its name, as for instance in "Robin Hood Inn". This indication is lacking in the present instance, but as the name does seem to apply to a building, this was most likely a public house. In the immediate vicinity is a Robin Hood Bridge. The public house had been replaced by a foundry by 1901 or 1902 when a new revision of the map was being prepared (see Maps section below).
