The Robin Hood Inn.

By Henrik Thiil Nielsen, 2013-08-07. Revised by Henrik Thiil Nielsen, 2021-02-12.

The Robin Hood Inn in Mawdesley is located at the junction of Blue Stone, Tannersmith, Tincklers and Sydbrook lanes. Its history goes back to 1841 if not earlier.

According to a recent advert, the history of the pub goes back to the 15th century, but Richard Langford, a local researcher, has found no evidence to support this claim. The earliest landlord we know about is a Hugh Swift in 1841. There is no record of the inn's name at the time,[1] but the pub is included as "Robin Hood" on the 6" O.S. map of the area published in 1847, based on a survey carried out 1845-46 (see Maps below).
