Friar Close, Stannington / Google Earth Street View.

By Henrik Thiil Nielsen, 2020-02-04. Revised by Henrik Thiil Nielsen, 2020-02-04.

Friar Close is a residential cul-de-sac in Stannington, immediately south of River Loxley. Just north of it is a Robin Hood Chase. With a neighbouring street named after the outlaw it seems likely that Friar Close was so named with Friar Tuck and/or the Curtal Friar in mind. The houses in the street seem to be of late 20th century date.
