Robin Hood Cottage.

By Henrik Thiil Nielsen, 2013-08-07. Revised by Henrik Thiil Nielsen, 2019-05-31.

Robin Hood Cottage on Blue Stone Lane in Mawdesley is located opposite Nook Lane. It was built at some point between 1846 and 1893.

A 6" O.S. map published in 1847, based on a survey carried out 1845-46, shows no building at this location. However, it is included on O.S. maps published in 1894 and later (see Maps below). The recent photo shown below is labelled "Robin Hood Cottage, Blue Stone Lane", which is a fairly clear indication that the name is still in current use. As can be seen on the Google Earth Street View photo also include below, an inscription on the plaque above the doorway reads "Robin Hood | Cottage" followed by a year. Is it 1852?
