Great Laxey Wheel & Mines 2024

The Great Laxey Wheel or 'Lady Isabella' (as she is also known) is the largest working waterwheel in the world. She was built in 1854 to pump water from the Laxey mines, a brilliant example of Victorian engineering. Today a climb to the top is rewarded with panoramic views across the Laxey Valley.
