My Great Great Grandfather William Manning was a publican from some time before 1838 for about 20 years. I think this Robin Hood must have been demolished around 1859, because Stanfords 1862 map shows new streets, replacing Whitmore Place and Grange Walk. (My ancestor Wm Manning died of TB in 1860) ***
