The miners arch.

The miners route to the north workings was down a steep slope on the cliffs above Johnson's bay.

From just above the beach level, the men made their way along a series of iron walkways to avoid the waves at high tide in the winter months.

This fine arch of rock remains after the the vein, which cuts across the beach at this point had been worked away.

The scars from earlier working can be seen high on the cliff in the background.
