    Summerhill Glen on the Isle of Man is a seasonally illuminated glen that had a huge impact on the direction of my life when I was taken there as a young kid (late 1960's?). Even for adults it's a very deep and vivid sensory experience that can't be conveyed fully in a video. Although this illuminated glen has been around for many decades, it's still well maintained and updated in a manner that indicates that the people who maintain it are genuinely fond of it.

England isn't just "England" when you really mean the UK). - The guy talking talks fast. Deal with it. Or just rewind the video (that's what the knob is for... and I don't mean the one that you're looking down at from your lofty trolling tower of your arrogant head) - The guy talking is riding a Honda 1000... very fast (the film is not speeded up - geez, are some folks that stupid!?) - this was BEFORE his current Tyco BMW days. Like, you know... in the past. - The guy talking is riding at the TT (Google it, you lazy bastard) -- that doesn't mean "Time Trial"... it's the "Tourist Trophy" - The TT is held on a little island (think of it as the Belly Button) in the Irish Sea called the "Isle of Man" -- that's in the bit of deep water between the two islands that make up Ireland and Great Britain - herein known as the "smaller island" and the "bigger island" (for the pompous crowd that call GB the "Mainland"). No Prod or Cafflick politics here. Just guys who all like bikes. - The TT is held in mid-JUNE each year. - The guy talking has a mini bullet camera (in the days before GoPro!) on his bike that was shot in 4:3 (not HD and not 16:9 widescreen - accept it!) by the awesomeness that is Greenlight Television (thank you to Richard @ Greenlight for letting us upload it in the first place. Gentleman). It was done in the past pre-GoPro era. Okay!! Deal with it. It is what it is. I can't go back in my DeLorean and change it. - For the last time, the guy talking is not a "Limey Announcer"... it's GUY MARTIN - living legend. OTHER FAQs - The music at the start is "Where's Your Head At" by Basement Jaxx. - There's a part 2/2 to this video which is the 2nd half of this lap (this video is only the first half, so it doesn't "just stop"!

Geography It is located in Sulby Glen near the source of the Sulby River, the longest river on the island. It is at the foot of Druidale, Glen Crammag, and a third, unnamed minor valley. It is at the junction of three parishes: Michael, Lezayre and Braddan. Sulby Reservoir is also about 1.5 miles (2.4 km) west of the summit of Snaefell, the island's highest peak. It is operated by the Isle of Man Water Authority. Use The reservoir supplies St Johns, Peel, Kirk Michael, Ballaugh, Andreas, Bride, Ramsey and Laxey. Water can also be pumped to the West Baldwin Reservoir which supplies Douglas and the south of the island. The reservoir also powers a hydro-electric power station one mile (1.6 kilometres) downstream. (Water flows through a pipeline from the reservoir to the power station. The power station is also fed by another, smaller reservoir, Block Eary.) An energy recovery system was installed at the Sulby Water Treatment Works in 2013, to generate hydro-electric power from incoming water.

Laxey Wheel - Isle of Man by Drone Music by Anthony Cubbon - Please check out his channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCIGLq_FWzdf3ib_CxhUckFA 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. The 150th anniversary of the Lady Isabella was celebrated by the people of Laxey with a grand fayre on Saturday 24 September 2004. It is currently maintained by Manx National Heritage as part of the Great Laxey Wheel & Mines Trail. The wheel features today on the reverse side of the £20 notes issued by the Isle of Man Government The triskelion on the front of the wheel is backwards. This happened by accident when transferring the image onto the wall; they forgot to reverse it, so it is actually a mirror image of the symbol of Mann.A water-powered wheel was used because the Isle of Man does not have a supply of coal for a steam-powered pump. Water from the surrounding area – including the local river – is collected in a cistern, which is above the level of the top of the wheel. A closed pipe connects the cistern to the top of the wheel; thus the water flows up the tower as an inverted syphon. The water falls from the pipe into the buckets (formed from wooden slats on the circumference) and makes the wheel rotate in what is described as the 'reverse' direction. The crank has a throw of 4 feet (1.2 m) and connects to a counterweight and to a very long rod. This rod runs along the rod viaduct to the pumping shaft where the 8 feet (2.4 m) stroke is converted by T-rockers into a pumping action. Most of the wheel and rod is made of wood; however, key mechanical parts are metal to provide tension and bearing surfaces. The rod has attached wheels at intervals to permit the stroke's motion with minimal friction. Diameter: 72 ft 6 in. Circumference: 210 ft 6 in. Width: 6 ft. Delivery: 250 imperial gallons (1,100 l) of water a minute from the Laxey mines some 200 yards (180 m) away and 1,500 feet (460 m) below ground Mine The mine employed over 600 miners at its peak, producing lead, copper, silver and zinc, until it closed in 1929. In 1965 the Manx Government bought the wheel and site. The wheel was restored; in 1989, it was put under the control of Manx National Heritage.
