This view from across the bay shows the brickworks buildings at the base of the cliff and also the winding engine remains on the hilltop to the left. A darker line of vegetation shows the line of the tramway which brought the quartzite from the hilltop quarry down to a crushing house at the back of the works. The silca rich bricks made here were suitable for lining industrial furnaces.
