I think the pit was the Globe and also known as Globe Pit Row

Been 'walking' through the 1881 census.  Pit Row seems to be sandwiched between Queen Street and Hope Street/Queen Street as if it was adjacent/at right angles to both streets  :-\

It has

Hope Street.....
Queen Street.........
Pit Row
Hope Street
Queen street

Can you see a  Globe Pit Row. It's on the same description/leader  page as Hope Street. It's just before Pump Street.

Added - Missed you post about it being called Globe Pit Row - sorry

Reading the census description against the map, I'm thinking it might be that part that has Picture Theatre on one side of the street and Cross Street on the other.

Added - Globe Pit Row is the boundary road on the East of the Census ED, so would be on  the colliery (east)  side of the block of streets I've listed.
