Robinhood Lane in Winnersh runs north-east from Reading Road to become Davis Street north of the A329 (M) overpass.

Until sometime in the latter half of the 20th century, the road followed a less direct course than it does at present. North of Arbor Lane, it turned NNE, following the course of the present Robin Hood Way. See this for further discussion of changes to the course of the road. The earliest O.S. map I have seen to include the road name is a 6" map dating from 1883 (see below).
