Laxey New Wheel

The Foundation has given considerable financial support to the exciting project of installing a new water wheel in the Laxey Glen Gardens. The wheel is actually the one previously used at the Snaefell Mine at the beginning of the last century. Since then it has been in Cornwall and Wales, but has now been brought back to the Isle of Man for installation on the old washing floors. The Project is being undertaken by the Laxey Mines Research Group.
