There is a Coach Road mentioned in this PDF

 

The plan shows new and intensive residential development for industrial workers
off Front Street at each end of the town, most likely related to developments at the iron
works and at the new Bedlington „A‟ Pit which opened in 1838, only 5 years before the
map was drawn. Workers terraces and Methodist chapels in Coach Road, Chapel Row
and Walker Terrace were built by the owners of the iron works in the early 1800s,
surprisingly close to their own mansions.

Coach Lane had a mention on this site March 13 2014 in 'Old Places in Bedlington' when  it was said that "Walker Terrace was on the first left Before going down Bedlington Bank. I Think it stood next to a street called Coach Road. That old big sandstone house for retired clergymen, is it Spring Mount was at the end of the Road".

Following Pete's link above to orthumberland.gov.uk you can find Spring View (not Spring Mount) on the far right of the map at 4.21 - First Edition OS map c1860.

On the Third Edition OS map c 1920 4.30 you can read:

4.37 Although Spring View still survives as a reminder of the Bedlington iron and

engine works, Holly Mount had gone as had workers cottages associated with both

houses, to be replaced by modern housing behind Front Street East and a new

retirement home on the main street itself at the entrance to the old town.

Can't remember having seen a Coach Lane on anything I have looked at. Someone once posted a record from Bedlington Village Infants School - 1914 and that has one pupil living in Coach Road :-

Coach Road is shown in green in the bottom right hand corner of the attached 1897 ordinance plan. The Jonnie Johnson retirement home is shown in yellow

      All they want to do is cradle their newborn baby in their arms.
      But Bedlington parents Carly Walker and Ryan Murphy have been forced to watch from the sidelines as their daughter fights for her life.
      Little Ayda Faith Murphy was born prematurely on March 31, weighing just 4lbs, at Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary.
      Rushed for her first operation straight after birth and another at just four days old, she's battling terrifying odds after being diagnosed with a series of incredibly rare birth defects.
      An almost unique variant of gastroschisis, a defect of the abdominal wall, has left her intestines pushing up into her chest - a condition doctors estimate is suffered by no more than 10 babies worldwide.
      Meanwhile, her heart appears to have flipped over and lies on the wrong side of her chest, while she's receiving oxygen from a machine due to her underdeveloped lungs.
