Aerial pictures of three tholtans, a chapel and a mine.  Glen Rushen.  DJI Spark
Two Tholtans
The Chapel
The 1870 Ordnance Survey map show this as 'Wesleyan Methodist Chapel.  In Frances Coakley's 'Manx Notebooks' it is mentioned (under 1902 Chapel returns) as seating 70. Maybe they were talking about another building but it doesn't look big enough and why such a big chapel to serve a few upland farms.  It's suggested that it was owned by Beckwith's Mine, but it's not that close to the mine and as far as I know the miners didn't live up here.  So a bit of a mystery.
The third Tholtan, Claghbane.
Beckwith's Mine
Lead was first discovered here on the surface around 1830 and a mine started to recover it in 1831.  The mine was equipped with a steam engine to pump out water and eventually reached a depth of 185 fathoms.  It continued in production until 1879.  (Laxey Mines Research Group).  There are considerable remains still on the surface although trail bike riding has destroyed much over the years.  The site is now closed off to motor vehicles.
