The Robin Hood at 19 Market Street, Tottington, Bury, was in business by 1838.

It is included in the tithe award for the 'township of Tottington Lower End in the parish of Bury' (1838), with William Hampson as landowner and George Scarnell as occupier. Three plots are listed under the heading of 'Robin Hood':

  • plot No. 889: 'Robin Hood Public House[,] Barn[,] Cow house[,] stable Yd', occupying a combined area of 26 perches (657.61 m2)
  • plot No. 990: 'Bowling green', with an area of 1 rood and 12 perches (303.51 m2)
  • plot No. 991: 'Way bank', with an area of 1 acre, 2 roods and 22 perches (6626.73 m2)


yielding a total area of 2 acres, 1 rood and 20 perches (9611.28 m2). No state of cultivation is listed for the two first, but the last is listed as 'meadow'.[1]

The Robin Hood is named on the early 25" O.S. maps of the area but is indicated, if at all, only by 'P.H.' on the 6" maps (see links below). A parking lot now occupies the former bowling green.
