The Falkirk Wheel
The Falkirk Wheel
Falkirk Boat Lift, aka the Falkirk Wheel, was opened in 2002 to reconnect the Forth and Clyde Canal with the Union Canal for the first time in 40 years. The world's only rotating boat lift, it was built by Butterley Engineering of Derbyshire. The Wheel leads onto an aqueduct and through a brand new canal tunnel to reach the higher course of the Union Canal, and replaces a long-disappeared flight of locks. LinkExternal link
