The English Place-Name Society volume that covers the Huddersfield area lists Robin Hood Hill and Robin Hood House (under Almondbury parish)[1] without any source reference, which usually indicates a modern date. Robin Hood Hill is the name of a hill with a c. 200 m long stretch of road off Woodhead Road. An adjacent, short and roughly L-shaped bit of road off Woodhead Road is named Hood Street. On Hood Street, one finds Robin Hood House.
