We would often combine it with the sport so common to colliery rows across the land, known to us as Hedge-Hopping. A sort of Privet based hurdles, stretching the entire length of a coal field terrace. In the town I grew up in, some of those rows are about ¾ of a mile long. The object of the game was basically to perform swan dives over a collection of hedges and fences, while the irate people whose door/window/door and window you had just knocked on chased you down in order to give you a wallop on the head, or "dad yer lugs" as we called it.
Find enclosed, the google map of the Hedge Hop Marathon. *Sighs*, happy days.
