Robin Hood Street in Nottingham runs NNE from Bath Street, becoming Beacon Hill Rise after a couple of hundred meters. It is located in a neighbourhood where a couple of other Robin Hood-related place-names are found. It may have been the inspiration for them. There was a pub named Robin Hood Arms at No. 41.

See Victoria Park (Nottingham) place-name cluster. Robin Hood Street figures in all the 25" and 6" O.S. maps listed below, dating from 1881 on. The earliest reference IRHB has found is the 1861 census of Nottinghamshire.[1]
