Robinhood Lane in Mitcham leads southwest from Manor Road in an area bounded by the latter, Sherwood Park Road and Wide Way. Northwest of Abbotts Road it is a proper street, but southwest of it passage is blocked by a green iron gate, and beyond the gate the lane is little more than a rut or footpath between gardens and garages, The earliest reference I have found is a 6" O.S. map published 1936, based on surveying done in 1932 (see Maps section below). Several streets in the vicinity have Robin Hood-related names.
