The workings at south Bradda.

Visible from Port Erin, the deep open excavation can be seen in the cliff behind the chimney. This was the site where several stone mauls were located indicating prehistoric working.

Hitches cut into the rock to accommodate heavy timbers from the 1800's can be seen in the vein.

The remains of the lower adit level have been found under the spoil and what is possibly the upper level has been found under a large overhang.

The chimney was the flue from the boiler for a steam winding engine. As there was no shaft on this side, it is unclear what it's function was. Perhaps to haul the trucks through the long level in the headland.
