Robin Hood Road between Knaphill and St John's, Woking, connects a small cluster of localities with Robin Hood-related names, for which see Knaphill place-name cluster.

The earliest dated reference I have found for this road name is a 25" O.S. map of the area published in 1936 and based on surveying done in 1934. (see Maps below). However, there is no doubt that the postcard shown in the gallery below dates from a time much closer to 1900.
