The world's only rotating boat lift
I knew from news items when it was opened that it was an impressive piece of engineering, but your photographs really do it proud, both in terms of the engineering aspects of the mechanism and putting it in context with it's surroundings, most impressive in both senses, very well done.
Thanks, glad you like them :smile:
Nice to see a comprehensive selection Glenn!
Also Falkirk wheel - Olympus UK E-System User Group
and The Falkirk Wheel but different.. - Olympus UK E-System User Group
but the last link the brilliant pictures are missing! Arg.
Fabulous shots of an amazing piece of engineering!
All the best,
the b&w shot is easily the best of the group
All of those shots are nice. Good job of really documenting this device. I'd like to see it in action!
I cycled out there from Edinburgh along the Union canal during the summer and was pleasantly surprised by how interesting the engineering is and in particular how low the energy requirements are
Yes, apparently it uses 1.5 kWh to rotate (about the same as 8 electric kettles use to boil)
Amazing piece of engineering. I can't believe I didn't know about it already. Neat photos, too.
