The exact location of Robin Hood's Close is not known, but it was near St Ann's Well, formerly known as Robin Hood's Well. I have put the Close close to the Well.

By Henrik Thiil Nielsen, 2016-10-11. Revised by Henrik Thiil Nielsen, 2018-07-16.

Robin Hood's Close was a pasture[1] probably situated near St Ann's Well,[2] which latter was also known as Robin Hood's Well. Robin Hood-related place-names tend to cluster, and an entry in the civic records for 1624 refers to four (unnamed) closes near the well.[3] Very likely one of these was Robin Hood's Close. The 1484-85 record entry cited below refers to work done at both Robin Hood's Close and "þe Copy", i.e. the Coppice, a locality that was situated c. 200 m NNE of Robin Hood's Well.[4] That the Close was located in the immediate vicinity of the Well becomes virtually certain when we note that it was held by one John Selliok in 1499 and a disturbance in 1500 (see records cited below) took place on land "in the holding of John Seliok at Nottingham aforesaid, near Robynhode Well".

I do not know the exact location, but as coordinates must be provided for this place-name to appear on Google maps, I have chosen a location very close to the well. Template:PnItemQry
