North of the Bradford Road intersection, Potovens Lane was known as 'Robin Hood Hill Lane' in the mid-19th century.

The street appears with that name attached to it on a 6" O.S. map of the area published in 1854, based on surveying carried out 1848 to 1851 (see Maps below). In subsequent maps it has its present name. Its former name was suggested by the fact that it crosses Robin Hood Hill. The lane may well have been known as 'Robin Hood Street' in the mid-17th century, see Robin Hood Street Close (Outwood).
