The site of Robinhood Farm.

By Henrik Thiil Nielsen, 2017-01-17. Revised by Henrik Thiil Nielsen, 2018-07-12.

Robinhood Farm was located in Lostock Green, a hamlet in Lostock Gralam, situated about 1 km south of the main town of the parish. The English Place-Name Society's volume on this part of Cheshire lists it without source reference or date, which probably indicates a modern place-name.[1] The earliestt reference I have found so far concerns a woman born at Robinhood Farm in 1923.[2] The farm was located on the west side of a lane off Birches Lane, immediately east of the A556 (which did not exist then).
