The Laxey Wheel can be found on the hill above the village of Laxey on the Isle of Man. Built in 1854 to pump out water from the Glen Mooar section of the Great Laxey Copper, Zinc and Lead Mine, it was named ‘Lady Isabella’ after the wife of the Lieutenant Governor of the Island, The Honourable Charles Hope.
The Laxey Wheel is the largest working water wheel in the world and has even had a song written about it. A popular attraction and icon of the Isle of Man, it has even been featured on the Manx £20 bank note.
