Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

I have recently been posting photographs of the famous Falkirk Wheel but there is more than the wheel at the location, there are activities to interest most family members.

The photographs look much better in large format and can be accessed here .

My main photograph shows one of the pieces of equipment designed long ago and is called the Archimedes screw. By turning the screw it is possible to lift water from a low level to a higher level. It was a fascinating activity for children and adults alike.
There were many other, water involved, pieces of equipment for people to try and they caused lots of interest

A visit to the Falkirk Wheel can be a fantastic day out for everyone,. There are boat trips, a cafe and outdoor catering, visitor centre and gift shop, the splash zone, waterwalkerz, canoeing, bike hire, segway safaris and much more.

I will add a workshop showing one of these activities which was being thoroughly enjoyed!

Thanks for your interest, Bev :-)
