Isle of Man. L/S of huge palm trees with water in the background - tropical island setting. C/U low angle shot of the top of a palm tree. L/S of the 'tropical island setting'. Cut to completely opposite scene - cliffs, beach, green hills and a row of little white cottages. This is not a tropical island - this is the Isle of Man!

The Laxey Wheel is the largest working waterwheel in the world. The wheel was used to pump water from the Glen Mooar part of the Great Laxey Mines industrial complex. The Triskelion is visible on the front of the wheel.

Called The Lady Isabella and reputed to be the largest waterwheel in the world. For a modest fee you can climb to the top, and spend hours on the wonderful maze of scenic walks and, with the free loan of a hard hat, enter the actual lead mine. My Japanese friend was impressed with the silence of all this power generated from what seems like an impossibly small quantity of water. The ultimate green machine. Well worth the gate money come rain or shine. Also check out the water wheels of Hama. One of them may prove to be larger. They certainly are impressive.
