Robin Hood Quarry was a sandstone quarry in the village of Robin Hood (Wakefield). The first record I have found of this place-name so far is the 6" O.S. map of the area published in 1854. The quarry is indicated, but without name, on subsequent revisions of the map published from then until 1931, when the area was used for allotment gardens (see Maps section below).
