Robin Hood Road in Annesley, 2.3 km SSE of central Kirkby in Ashfield, not found on O.S. maps dating from the late 19th to early 20th century, almost certainly dates from sometime after 1938. No doubt the name was suggested by the presence of several other Robin Hood-related names in the vicinity: the Robin Hood public house, Robin Hood's Hills, Robin Hood's Cave, Robin Hood's Chair.
