Also known as Lady Isabella the Laxey Wheel is the biggest working waterwheel in Europe. It was built in 1854 to pump water from the Great Laxey Mine which produced lead, copper, silver and zinc.
The mine closed in 1929. In 1965 the Manx Government bought the wheel and site. The wheel was restored and in 1989, it was put under the control of Manx National Heritage.
