The weir at Laxey and Lady Evelyn waterwheel
The weir at Laxey and Lady Evelyn waterwheel
The Snaefell Mine was located at the end of Laxey valley on a slope of the mountain. In 1865 a 50 1/2 feet diameter waterwheel was built to pump water out of the mine. When the mine closed in 1907 the waterwheel was sold and moved to Cornwall. The Laxey Mines Research Group reached an agreement with the Trevithick Trust in 2003 and the wheel was returned to the Island, where it was reassembled in the Laxey Valley Gardens.
The waterwheel is known as either the Lady Evelyn or the Snaefell Mine waterwheel and is based in the former 'washing floors' area of the mine.
