Having grown up around there (I lived at 45 Coronation Rd) and I would say no. Having walked down the above road to school at Hoyland Common I think what you are trying to say is that it's the bottom of Low Hill (Hawshaw Lane) just before one gets to West Street.Looking at the picture,if you were to turn around and go up the hill a school was built on one's left just below the Low Stand but it was long gone when I used to pass in the 50's as a lad and a bungalow had been built. My dad (Willis Ibbotson) went to that school though.

I think this shows the house called Highbury in Lane End which was lived in by the managers of Rockingham colliery until the 1960s. It was a semi, the other half (chimneys only just visible), being occupied in the 1960s by the Chambers (of Newton Chambers) family. There was a direct supply of coal gas from Rockingham pit which went under the fields and into the houses. The garden was huge and had a tennis court at the bottom. I think the house in the distance was a farm where I used to go and buy eggs - now knocked down for a modern housing estate. Between the two was the house occupied at one time by Barry Hines, who wrote Kes.
