The Guss & Crook was situated on South Road. This pub closed in 2013. A guss or gus was a length of rope fastened around the waist of a young boy which was itself attached to a chain and crook, which pulled along a cart in coal seams which were too short in height for pit ponies to operate. The pub was originally known as The New Inn.
