The Isle of Man – Day 8

Our last day on the island.

As our ferry was not leaving until 3pm we managed to fit in a visit to the Laxey Wheel, and Peel Castle, both opening to the public this morning for the first time in months.

The Laxey Wheel is the largest water wheel in the world. It was designed to pump water from underground so that the miners could work safely.

Peel Castle was originally built in the 11th century by Vikings.

Overlooking the bay with all the scallop shells.

After lunch we headed back to Douglas to board the catamaran, Manannan, back to Liverpool

Our stay on the Isle of Man was over, but after dinner with family in Wallasey, we drove to Bangor in Wales to continue our travels.
