Coal pit Lane

As most of my family appear to have lived around what is now Upperthorpe, Netherthorpe, through to the town centre along Solly Street and Townhead Street, I was hoping to find Coalpit Lane near there as I have a branch of my family living there.  I know roads ‘disappear’ over time and wondered which map I should look at to see if there ever existed Coalpit Lane in this area.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks
