Robin Hood Bridge takes Rodger Street over the railway tracks to meet Tenter Street in Rotherham. The earliest record I have found of it is the 6" O.S. map of the area published in 1854, based on surveying carried out 1850-51.[1] The line, then called the North Midland Railway[2] opened in 1840, so the bridge cannot very well be much older than that. Formerly there was a public house named Robin Hood on the north side of Rodger Steert, c. 50 m west of the bridge.
