Very likely the name of this street in the south of Macclesfield, a little west of Sutton, was inspired by the presence, at least as late as 1938, of (what was probably) a farmstead named 'Robinhood' in the immediate vicinity. On the latest of the O.S. maps listed below, the avenue seems to be indicated as a projected street, but it does not yet have a name.
