Through The Ages

Falkirk lies right in the heart of Scotland, a town with a rich commercial heritage which continues to this day. It is the largest town in present day Stirlingshire.
Today you can view the full spectrum of the town's history, from the Roman Antonine Wall, through the 19th Century splendour that was Callendar House, bang up to the present with the remarkable 21st century Falkirk Wheel, a modern answer to an old transport problem.

    Wonderful pictures, we went on the Falkirk wheel a few years ago and really enjoyed it - none of our pictures are nearly as good as yours - it was pouring with rain!!!

    What an interesting page. (But isn't the poem you quote as your motto by John Masefield?)
