The site of Robin Hood's Well.

By Henrik Thiil Nielsen, 2017-01-19. Revised by Henrik Thiil Nielsen, 2018-07-12.

Robin Hood's Well in Nether Knutsford, one of the four wards of Knutsford, Cheshire, is listed on 6" O.S. maps of the area dated 1882 and 1899 (see Maps section below). Very close to this locality was a Robin Hood's Cottage. I have not been able to establish the exact location of either from the maps, but this would have been somewhere near the NE end of Malt Street, perhaps in the area known as the Moor.[1] Robin Hood's Well may have been a spring or a well with some kind of cover or well-house, but again this cannot be determined from the maps. The place-name is most likely defunct, as is probably that of the Cottage., for I found no mention of either on the world wide web on 19 Janaury 2017.
