  • Laxey Wheel, Isle of Man 2012. Largest water wheel in the world ?

    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.

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.

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.
