Description (or HER record listing)

Black Boy Colliery (Gurney Pit) is labelled on the first edition Ordnance Survey map of 1857. The pit was sited at the eastern end of the Black Boy Railway incline. The pit is marked as disused on the 1938-1950 edition. It has since been reclaimed and is now a field/woodland plantation.
