Wheel.

I'm afraid I'm spamming a bit - I have another 2 or 3 to post as well...

This is the world's biggest water wheel. She is called Lady Isabella and is in the village of Laxey, about 4 miles from where I live. Her role was to pump the water from the lead mines until they shut in the 1920s.

As you can see, I took this picture at the end of winter, but never used it for anything! It is hard to get the real idea of size from the picture - she is 22.1m, (72.5feet) in diameter...

You definitely own the 'wheel' category!
The odd thing is that it didn't occur to me straight away to use the Laxey Wheel for this category!
WOW. This is right up my alley. Thanks for sharing this!
My pleasure - she is a bit unusual!
