This is a view of the markings made over time at the end of the tunnel in Brigus. A landmark to this small community. This tunnel was built for Captain Abraham Bartlett by the Cornish Miner John Hoskins during the summer of 1860. It was built to provide easy access to the Barlett wharf which projected into the deep water at it's outer end. The holes for the blasting charges were dug by hand and took 4 months of strenuous labour.
