The Falkirk Wheel - Falkirk District

The Falkirk Wheel, Falkirk District, Scotland

Looking north from off to one side of the wheel.

You can easily see the structure of the wheel and the boats in both the top and bottom caissons, ready for the wheel to revolve and swap them over.

A view looking directly along the top - Union - canal.

You can easily see the main basin on the left and the glass-walled visitor centre on the right.

This angle shows the repetition of the semi-circular and circular patterns which is not at all obvious from ground level.

Looking back along the Union canal section above the wheel.

It gets pretty busy when there are four tourist boats on the canal at the same time.

Oddly, they're all called Archimedes...
