Coronavirus: We would like to thank our customers for continued support in these difficult times. We are a web based company operating in a rural area, so our staff travel to work by car individually and both in our office & factory we have enough room to maintain social distancing. As such and in consultation with our staff, we have decided to remain open for business unless or until government policy changes. We are still able to despatch most of our products, however, the ones listed below (that are made by other manufacturers) will not be available for a while.

More about this scene

Caption for Laxey, Wheel 1896: Designed by Manxman Robert Casement and commissioned in September 1854 to pump water from the Laxey mines, the wheel was in regular use until 1920. It is named Lady Isabella in honour of Lady Isabella Hope, wife of Governor Hope. When this picture was taken, the mining company charged visitors 3d each to use the observation platform. In 1854, Laxey Mining's £80 paid shares were trading at £1,200 each.
