NS8580 : Aqueduct to the Falkirk Wheel

taken 5 months ago, near to Camelon, Falkirk, Great Britain

Aqueduct to the Falkirk Wheel
Aqueduct to the Falkirk Wheel
North of Roughcastle tunnel the canal briefly follows natural ground level, then onto an embankment that quickly becomes an aqueduct leading to the wheel itself. This is the first glimpse of the Wheel as you approach on the towpath from Falkirk.
The Falkirk Wheel
Opened in 2002 by the Queen, the Falkirk Wheel is a testament to the popularity of canal cruising in the modern era. It connects the Forth and Clyde Canal with the Union Canal, replacing a flight of locks which fell into disuse in the 1930s and had been built on. The wheel raises or lowers boats 24m (79ft) and takes five-and-a-half minutes to complete a rotation. It is now a major visitor attraction.
