The engine house built into the cliff face at north Bradda.

This superb structure, like many of the engine houses on the Cornish cliffs, has stood the test of time and faired the elements for more than one hundred years.

There is little documentation on the workings and nothing remains in the building other than the four holding bolts for the engine, suggesting that the cylinder was around thirty inches in diameter.

The remains of the pump rod can be seen in the shaft which is against the cliff. The nearest part of the structure was the boiler room.
