Robin Hood Far Stile Close in Outwood figures in the records as early as 1790. Its exact location cannot be established from the information available to IRHB, but it must have been situated within an area bounded (approximately) on the north by Ledger Lane, on the east by Leeds Road (A61) as far south as the Bar Lane intersection, on the south by a line from the latter point to Wrenthorpe, on the west by Wrenthorpe Road and Potovens Lane to the intersection of the latter and Ledger Lane.

The coordinate chosen for Robin Hood Far Stile Close was picked more or less at random but so as to fall within this area and be close to Potovens Lane. See further Robin Hood Street Close (Outwood). Template:PnItemQry
