Name and dates

Carberry Colliery Pits Nos 2 and 3 (1866-1960)

Served by the Macmerry Branch (North British Railway).


Description

Opened by Deans and Moore. In 1900 the Edinburgh Collieries Company rebuilt the colliery, abandoning pit no 1 and opening no 3.

No 1 was probably Deans Pit, a short distance to the south west of the later colliery.

The colliery was served by a short branch from Smeaton.
