Sherwood Close, Tottington.
Sherwood Close, on the northwest side of Kirlees Street in Tottington / Google Earth Street View.

Sherwood Close, a residential cul-de-sac in Tottington, is a side street of Kirklees Street. Just west of it, separated from it only by a parking lot, is the Robin Hood, whose bowling green once occupied the area that is now the parking lot, and in the immediate vicinity was formerly a Robin Hood Brewery. It is hard to imagine that whoever came up with the name 'Sherwood Close' was unaware of these Robin Hood-themed names.

IRHB knows the street name only from Google Earth and can therefore offer no suggestion as to the age of the street and its name, but the look of the houses on Sherwood Close seems consistent with a 20th century date.
