Coal-pit Lane

1) Once a common place-name.

This was formerly a common minor place-name but few examples now survive. They began to be replaced once people started to feel that their address somehow reflected their social status. References date from the fourteenth century: 1331 ‘the western headland abuts above Colepitlane’, Hemsworth.
