Robin Hood Quarry was a sandstone quarry in the village of Robin Hood (Wakefield). The first record of this place-name known to IRHB is the MS tithe map, dated 1841, for the township of Lofthouse in the Parish of Rothwell.[1] It is next found included on 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).
