Have you looked at the maps on ?

If you use the on line viewer - zoom into Portacloy and then change to the 6" map (control panel on RHS). It will show the map of PortaCloy around 1840-1860 and the location of CG station buildings are clearly shown.

Then use Bing map (better than google for this place) near the same location, now mostly modern building but looks like one small stone building/shed and some squarish outlines in the land match where the CG building were.
