The earliest record I have found of the Robin Hood in Millhouses Lane, Sheffield, is the 6" O.S. map of the area published in 1854, where it is labelled "Robin Hood & Little John P.H.". This map has the pub on the north side of the road. Nowadays it is found on the south side. Has it moved or is the map mistaken? Oddly enough the pub is not labelled as such on subsequent maps (see Maps section below). When did the pub change its name from "Robin Hood and Little John" to just "Robin Hood"?
