The northern half of Ullswater Crescent was to have been named Robin Hood Way. It is labelled "Robin Hood Way" on two maps published c. 1944 to 1946 (see Maps section below). However, the name was instead used for a much larger street in the immediate vicinity. See Robin Hood Way (Kingston-upon-Thames) (2).
