The Laxey Wheel, Isle Of Man


The Laxey Wheel or 'Lady Isabella' is a large waterwheel built in the village of Laxey in the Isle of Man with a diameter of 22.1m. It was built in 1854 to pump water from the mineshafts - today its the largest working waterwheel in the world..! The wheel was restored  in 1989 and put under the control of Manx National Heritage in 1989.
Isle Of Man started issuing its own postage stamps in 1973. This is my first w&s postcard from there :))What I just love here is that the stamps match the postcard - thanks a lot James, very thoughtful!! They're from the National Heritage series issued in 2004.
