Description. Limestone has, from a very early date, been quarried in this township, but has given place to the very much more important industry of coal mining, which was commenced in 1857, and is extensively carried on at the Ryhope Colliery, by the Ryhope Coal Company, Limited.
Hurriers were as vital to the operation of a colliery as were the colliers. They were invariably children or women and as in textiles and many other trades in the industrial revolution, coal mining could not have developed without the exploitation of this source of labour power.
