The Falkirk Wheel is a rotating boat lift located in Scotland, UK, connecting the Forth and Clyde Canal with the Union Canal, opened in 2002. It is named after the nearby town of Falkirk which is in central Scotland. The two canals were previously connected by a series of 11 locks, but by the 1930s these had fallen into disuse, were filled in and the land built upon.

Yaya one of those pictures is mine! I lived in Falkirk for 30 years and they spent about 90 million building this thing, looks cool but serves no real purpose as hardly any boats still use the canal.
