The Robinhood Pool was located immediately west of the Robin Hood Inn in what was then known as Norbury but is now part of Hazel Grove, While the inn is first recorded in an 1849 tithe award, the earliest source I know of for the pool is from 1970.[1]

This is not the only pool located close to a Robin Hood pub. In Cherry Hinton, Cambridgeshire, across the street from a public house named the Robin Hood we find Robin Hood Dip, which contains a small island, the Giant's Grave.
