The English Place-Name Society volume that covers the Huddersfield area lists Robin Hood Hill and Robin Hood House (under Almondbury parish) without any source reference, which usually indicates a modern date. Robin Hood Hill is the name of a c. 200 m long section of a lane off Woodhead Road. A short, roughly L-shaped side road is named Hood Street. Robin Hood House is located on Hood Street. There are now only two houses on Hood Street; of these the one indicated on the Google map looks most like the house on the old photograph.
