    Description
    The Laxey Wheel, or Lady Isabella as it is known, was constructed in 1854 by John Casement, a native of Laxey and a brilliant engineer. It was designed by him to pump the surplus water from the mines and, by cleverly using the natural fall of the mountain streams as a power source, he produced this widely acclaimed remarkable engineering feat.
