|Interest||Robin Hood name|

Lower Robin Hood Lane is not labelled on any of the O.S. maps listed below (see Maps section), but as several other streets in Helsby also lack labels we cannot conclude from this that the street name had not come into use at the time. The element 'lower' serves to distinguish this street Robin Hood Lane tout court.
