One of the World's Most Unusual Elevators - The Falkirk Wheel - Scotland

The Falkirk Wheel is located in the Scotish Canals, lies at the end of a reinforced concrete aqueduct that connects, via the Roughcastle tunnel and a double staircase lock, to the Union Canal. Boats entering the Wheel's upper gondola are lowered, along with the water that they float in, to the basin below. At the same time, an equal weight rises up, lifted in the other gondola.
