The exact location of Robin Hood's Close is not known, but it was near St Ann's Well, formerly known as Robin Hood's Well. I have put the Close close to the Well.

Robin Hood's Acre, mentioned in the Nottingham civic records for 1624/25 (see record cited below), was probably located near Robin Hood's Well.[1]

I do not know where the Acre was located; the coordinates cited above put it quite close to Robin Hood's Well, but the exact spot I have chosen has nothing specific to recommend it. It is just that coordinates must be provided for this place-name to be indicated on the Google maps on the overview pages for Nottinghamhire and England.
