This mine was worked circa 1832 to 1881 by the Isle of Man Mining Company, usually in conjunction with the more extensive Beckwith Mine situated 2/3 of a mile West and it exploited part of a vein of lead ore which was temporarily very productive . There were two shafts approximately 240’ apart, the engine shaft and the Whim shaft – So called because it was originally worked with a horse gin or whim.

These Manx thatched cottages which overlooks the quaint Niarbyl Bay are probably more famous as the cottages used for the 1998 film Waking Ned Devine  – The left hand cottage was the cottage where Ned Devine died after winning the Irish Lottery 🙂
