Falkirk Wheel

19 April 2010, Monday
Went to the Falkirk wheel and that is really something. Go here to look at their website – http://www.thefalkirkwheel.co.uk/. You have to see this to truly appreciate the engineering that went into it. It is the only one of its kind in the world. The Scots are bloody smart buggers.

The wheel is not a concept. It is a fully working operation that provides for the movement of barges and boats from one canal system to another. The canal systems are at different heights.
