Some of our BoB/BoS members had a lovely time at the Falkirk Wheel on the Union Canal. The Falkirk Wheel is basically a gigantic boat lift - in fact it's the world first and only boat lift! The point of the wheel is to connect the Union Canal with the Forth and Clyde - it attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors every year.
Joanna went along and said she had a wonderful time: "Going in the Falkirk Wheel was a fascinating experience. We then had time by the wheel to have some lunch and a walk about before returning through the wheel and back to where we started our journey.
"We had a great day out on the Union canal meeting up with another group who we shared the barge with. We moved west from the Seagull Trust base towards the Falkirk Wheel on what was a lovely sunny day. Supplied with enough tea/coffee and biscuits for a month on the water never mind a day."
