Hood Street is a short, roughly L-shaped road off Woodhead Road. A house on Hood Street was called Robin Hood House, and in the immediate vicinity is found another small road named Robin Hood Hill. Places named after Robin Hood hardly ever omit the outlaw's first name, so most likely the name Hood Street is not related to the outlaw, but presumably it inspired the names Robin Hood House and Robin Hood Hill.
