"Robin Hoods Ground" was the mid-19th century local name for a piece of land in Winnersh, probably near Robinhood Lane.


According to the English Place-Name Society's volume on this part of Berkshire, a locality named "Robin Hoods Ground" is listed in the tithe award for Winnersh (1843). It is implied that this was near Robinhood Lane.[1] Unfortunately there are no scans of the tithe award for Winnersh at the Genealogist,[2] so until the MS tithe award is located and the exact location of Robin Hoods Ground established, the coordinates used in the info box and on the Google Map are those of a randomly chosen point on Robinhood Lane.
