THE FALKIRK WHEEL
The Falkirk Wheel is the only barge lift in the world. Take the barge that goes on the wheel. The Falkirk Wheel lift marks where Forth and Clyde Canal and the Union Canal system connect. The Falkirk Wheel replaces 11 locks which had to be manually worked to enable the barges to travel from and to the Forth and Clyde Canal and the Union Canal which has its basin in Fountainbridge Edinburgh.
