Sherwood Park Road. which takes you from the A232 to Robin Hood Lane, is situated in a neighbourhood with other Robin Hood place-names, which suggests strongly that the name was inspired by the Robin Hood tradition or itself provided the inspiration for the Robin Hood names in the area. The earliest reference I have found is a 6" O.S. map published 1871 and based on surveying survey carried 1866-67 (see Maps section below). As the earliest 1" O.S. maps are mostly not available online, It is possible that it is included on such earlier maps. A 6" O.S. map published in 1898 (rev. 1894-95) labels the road 'Sherwood Park' tout court.
