Robin Hood was a field name in the township of Thornton according to an 1850 MS Tithe Award I have not found it on O.S. 6" maps of the area from the 1890's. Without access to the tithe award it is hardly possible to say more exactly where this place may have been, but it cannot have been much more than a couple of kilometers from the village of Thornton. The coordinates cited in the fact box and indicated on the Google map are those of Thornton.
