The Falkirk Wheel—As the centrepiece of The Millennium Link, the project to reconnect and regenerate the Forth & Clyde and Union canals, The Falkirk Wheel is hailed as a monument to the skills of modern engineering. Created to replace the flight of eleven locks that originally connected the two canals, the magnificent 115 ft Wheel is made of steel with two giant caissons each capable of carrying up to four boats at a time.
Richard Shilling's land art involves making sculptures using only natural materials gathered near to where the sculpture is going to be made. He doesn't use glue or string and some of his work will last only a few short minutes before a change in the weather will sweep them away. Some of his art consists of different sized rocks balanced on top of each other precariously. We will have a gallery of his creations on the Telegraph site later today.
