Lincoln Green Road is one of a dozen residential streets in St Mary Cray (formerly a parish in Kent, now part of the London Borough of Bromley) whose names were more or less certainly inspired by that of a small wood that existed in this area before urbanization kicked in: Robin Hood Shaw. Even if it existed as an isolated street name, 'Lincoln Green Road' would certainly have been regarded as Robin Hood-related. Here it is found in a neighbourhood full of streets with names drawing on the Robin Hood tradition. See further the page on the St Mary Cray place-name cluster.
