Description: “A water wheel, stated to be the largest in the world, was started in 1855, named the “Lady Isabella,” after the lady of the then Lieutenant-Governor. The wheel, a great object of attraction, is certainly a proud marvel of engineering skill. Situated on a lofty elevation at the northern extremity of the valley, it arrests immediate attention on entering the glen.” (Glover's illustrated guide and visitors' companion through the Isle of Man, 1875, p.116.)
