Laxey is an old mining town, most famous for the largest working waterwheel in the world, known as the “Lady Isabella”.

Designed by Robert Casement, the wheel has a 72-foot-6-inch (22.1 m) diameter, is 6 feet (1.8 m) wide and revolves at approximately three revolutions per minute.

It was built in 1854 to pump water from the Glen Mooar part of the Great Laxey Mines industrial complex. It was named “Lady Isabella” after the wife of Lieutenant Governor Charles Hope, who was the island’s governor at that time.
