The Falkirk Wheel Whilst Rotating

Today Mags and I took our grandson Jack to visit the Falkirk Wheel and then on to Linlithgow Palace. The Falkirk Wheel was built with the help of Lottery Heritage Funds, at a cost of 17.5 million pounds, for the Millenium celebrations in 2000. It can rotate to lift 8 canal boats at a time (and the water they are floating in) from the Wheel Centre over 100 feet into the air. This means that instead of using about 8 locks to gain height, you can be travelling on your way on the canal in less than ten minutes. This was probably the biggest feat of British Engineering since the Victorian era. It really is a tourist magnet.
