The Robin Hood Inn is indicated on a 6" O.S. map of the area published in 1855, based on surveying done in 1850-51. The last 6" O.S. map to label the inn as such is one published 1908, based on surveying done in 1905 (see Maps section below). I think the house show in the Google Earth Street View photo displayed elsewhere on this page was the Robin Hood more than a hundred years ago.
