You are correct. The entrance to Collingham footway is still there ( top of Woolmer Road )

When you entered you walked the length of the houses and the 'footway' opened up. Once through on the right was a fish and chip shop and then the school, further down on the right hand side. I think once you had walked through you came in to Ryeland Crescent.

I walked by there the other day.

Kind regards

Ha yes the chippy near Collingham footway, when I lived on Glapton Road I used to often go there, 4 old pence for a bag of chips & a tanner for a mushy pea mix. Mam used to go to a bingo hall that was converted from a cinema on the corner of Ryeland Crescent & Kirk White street (I think), if she'd had a good win we had a slap up fish dinner, mind you she usually lost & then whinged & moaned. :) ..
