Driven 160 yards into the hillside by hand in 1790 the old adit of The Great Laxey Mine runs near the Lady Isabella up the Mooar River valley. It is hoped that at some point in the future the adit could be opened up to give the public access to the Engine shaft where the massive T-Rocker can be seen at work in the shaft. Subsurface laser Scanning were called in to help assess this possibility. By measuring the voids spaces between the collapsed areas of the adit a better feasibility study could be carried out.

The point cloud data can be used to create a 3D model for annalysis, plans, sections and volume calculation. In this instance it was possible to derive a complete 3D model of the audit and shafts from a combination of the existing survey information and the newly acquired adit locations from the void survey.
