And she consented to drive to Mansfield, both of them, to dinner, to bring Connie back to the lane-end after dark, and to fetch her from the lane-end the next morning, herself sleeping in Mansfield, only half an hour away, good going.

The excerpt comes from here: https://ebooks.adelaide.edu.au/l/lawrence/dh/l41l/chapter16.html

Does lane-end just simply mean the end of a lane, or is it a specific type of location? I couldn't find it in any dictionary.

Vogue you are correct in your first assumption, lane-end just means end of a lane.

I lack the imagination for a witty signature.
