Tryall Water Wheel, Jamaica

Roughly 10 miles west of Montego Bay, in Jamaica’s Hanover Parish, stands the enormous Tryall Water Wheel.

Originally constructed around 200 years ago, the 30-foot-diameter cast iron wheel was used to grind sugar cane produced on the Tryall Estate.

The wheel was damaged during the slave rebellion in the 1830s. However, thanks to subsequent renovations, it is today the last working water wheel in Jamaica.

Tryall Water Wheel is powered by water carried by aqueduct from the Flint River, roughly 2 miles distant.
