The Falkirk Wheel

Twig World

The Falkirk Wheel, located in Scotland, is the only rotating boatlift in the world. Constructed in 2002, it connected the Forth & Clyde and Union Canals for the first time in 70 years, providing a continuous waterway between Scotland’s two biggest cities, Edinburgh and Glasgow. Canals have historically played a vital role in transporting people and goods, especially during the Industrial Revolution when canal boats were the most efficient mode of transport available.
