Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

Yesterday, I explained how the Falkirk Wheel had been on my bucket list for quite a while and I showed how it came into view as we emerged from the canal tunnel.

Today, I am posting a more entire view of the wheel, which I found to be an incredible piece of technology, as well as a thing of beauty. It looks so much better opened in a new tab or in Beta.

My photograph shows the upper canal, supported by the stanchions, and terminating in the wheel. Below is the lower canal, with the lower compartment of the wheel.

There is a barge in the lower section and a barge just entering the upper section. When the barges are completely secure in their compartments, the wheel will rotate, so that the barges will be either lifted or lowered, to their respective places.

I will add a workshop, showing the wheel partly turned here .

This is an amazing invention and is supported by other activities to make a worthwhile destination for the whole family.

Thanks for your interest, Bev :-)
