Union 10 – Canal Anniversary

Union 10 – Canal Anniversary.

On the weekend of 24-26 September 2010, approximately 60 vessels made the journey from Edinburgh Quay to Falkirk Wheel, to celebrate 10 years since the Union Canal re-opened.

The flotilla arrived at Falkirk and progressed through the locks and onto the completely unique engineering marvel, the world’s only rotating boatlift, the Falkirk Wheel. The flotilla comprised narrowboats in all their varied decorations, many with additional festoons for the occasion, some other cruisers and some Edwardian steam launches.
