The first record I have found of the Robin Hood, until recently located on the corner of Chester Road and Lower Robin Hood Lane in Helsby, is a 6" O.S. map of the area published in 1881, based on surveying done 1873-74. It is found on all the later maps listed below (see Maps section). The pub had closed by 4 May 2009, and the building has subsequently been demolished. It was located on the corner of Chester Road and Lower Robin Hood Lane
