It looks like the house which was at the side of William Todds garage. I believe it was the Pit manager's house for Blundles pit. When I worked at Todd's in the eighties, the house was lived in by a Irish man called John. The back entrance which backed onto the yard was where the clocking on clock was.

A true no one can take ,
a belong that is you
a know this is me
and a forward ..,
