I'm from Donny originally so I'm not fussed either way, but having watched timeteam I think it's more plausible he came from Shropshire!

Watch for yourself and you decide: (need to watch all of it).

The ballads mention Robin of the Hood 4 centuries before the Sherwood one, and the ballads aren't about the original Robin. He's from Shropshire! Fulk Fitz Warine, 1197.
