Robinhood Street in Gloucester connects Bristol and Seymour roads.

As far as IRHB is aware, this residential street is first recorded on a 6" O.S. map of the area published in 1884. On the next side street of Bristol Road, coming from the south, there was until 2008 a pub named the Robin Hood. By and large a pub is much more likely to bequeath its name to the street on which it is situated than the other way around, but it is hardly possible, without knowing the date when each arose, to say which was, as it were, the donor in this case where the name is shared with a neighbouring street.
