A lane on the west side of Grove Road in Berry Hill, a good 700 m NNW of Coleford, is named Marian's Lane.

The street name is not included on the O.S. maps listed below. This fact together with the look of the houses in it (see photo below) suggests that the lane was constructed in the second half of the 20th century. It is one of a handful of localities or thoroughfares in the vicinity with "Marian" in their names that may all directly or indirecly owe their names to the existence of a Robin Hood inn in the area in the first half of the 19th century.
