Robin Hood Beck Bridge, c. 1.2 km NNE of Bassenthwaite, takes the road to Uldale over Robin Hood Beck c. 1.3 km NE of Castle Inn on the B5291. The only source I have found for this place-name is the Geograph page containing John Holmes's 2005 photo of the bridge (included on this page).[1] He seems to know the area well,[2] so most probably this name is in local use.
