'Robin Hood' is the name of one of three artificial fishing lakes known collectively as 'Little John Lakes' by River Maun on the west side of Maida Lane in Ollerton. The other lakes are named Maid Marion and Friar Tuck. Little John Lakes opened in 2006,[1] but it is not clear if all three lakes had been established by that time.

For statistical purposes the lakes have been categorized as 'Natural feature', which is paradoxically the best fit given the categories in use at IRHB.
