The Falkirk Wheel - Engineering Marvel [01:04]
See this engineering masterpiece known as The Falkirk Wheel. The Falkirk Wheel is a perfect example of functioning and modern architecture. Located in Scotland, it was designed to reconnect the Union Canal and the Forth and Clyde Canal. It serves as the only rotating boat lift in the world. The two canals had previously been joined by a fleet of locks, but in 1933, the locks had been dismantled. Officials then pondered what could be done to connect the two waterways. Hence the idea for the Falkirk Wheel was born. Completed in 2002, the engineering marvel measures 35 meters tall. It took over 1200 tons of steel to create along with 1000 construction crew members. Amazingly the wheel only uses 1.5 kilowatts of electricity per hour to turn, powered by ten hydraulic motors. The Falkirk Wheel can carry at least 8 boats at one time, taking about an hour to get from one canal to the other. Boat trips are offered so visitors can experience The Falkirk Wheel. Not only is the wheel an impressive piece of machinery, it also serves as a major landmark in Scotland.
Stanley Cotton Mills - Historic Site in Perthshire Scotland [02:30]
This is a short video of the historic Stanley Cotton Mill facilities in the town of Stanley, Perthshire Scotland. The mill was basically abandoned as better methods of milling cotton and more recently the historic and development potential was realized. Many of the old mill buildings are being renovated and turned into flats and apartments. However, a portion has been set aside as a historical site and some of the machinery is still in place.

★☭ KGB OFFICIAL REPORTS (INTERNATIONAL&IMPARTIAL) PARTISAN WORLD NEWS ★☭ "I'm sorry, but I don't want to be an emperor. That's not my business. I don't want to rule or conquer anyone. I should like to help everyone if possible; Jew, Gentile, black man, white. We all want to help one another. Human beings are like that. We want to live by each other's happiness, not by each other's misery. We don't want to hate and despise one another. In this world there is room for everyone, and the good earth is rich and can provide for everyone. The way of life can be free and beautiful, but we have lost the way. Greed has poisoned men's souls, has barricaded the world with hate, has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed. We have developed speed, but we have shut ourselves in. Machinery that gives abundance has left us in want. Our knowledge has made us cynical; our cleverness, hard and unkind. We think too much and feel too little. More than machinery, we need humanity. More than cleverness, we need kindness and gentleness. Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost. The airplane and the radio have brought us closer together. The very nature of these inventions cries out for the goodness in men; cries out for universal brotherhood; for the unity of us all. Even now my voice is reaching millions throughout the world, millions of despairing men, women, and little children, victims of a system that makes men torture and imprison innocent people. To those ...

UK Industrial Heritage Tour [06:21]
Just over 6 minutes edited from 14 hours of video taken on our August 2010 UK Restore Tour. This 19 day tour through England Scotland and Wales took our Toursgallery group to see a wide variety of machinery and heritage associated with The Industrial Revolution. Guests visited and saw Portsmouth Royal Navy Docks and walked all over HMS Victory, had a very personalised visit at the Manchester MOSI with all its working engines, went down into the Welsh ' Big Pit' Coal Mine and walked all over and under The Iron Bridge, the first Cast Iron bridge, built by Abraham Darby in 1779. We explored Blists Hill Victorian Town, took a look at Manchester Ship Canal, Clydebuilt Maritime Museum, saw George Stephenson's Train 'Locomotion No 1' built in 1825, got inspired by the National Railway Museum in York, were very impressed by the RAF Museum at Hendon ... but the main feature of all was our 2 days at The Great Dorset Steam Fair. Private collectors of engines, farm equipment and tractors were visited, the wonderful generous hospitality offerd by Geoff Challinor and his fellow devoted workers at The Anson Engine Museum, Mike Ellis and his family on their farm decorated with a mountain of restoration projects, Harry Ferguson's Grandson and his wife Sue who put on such a lavish lunch for us and Jim Thomas' private collection of tractors which we could ride around his field. In August 2011 Toursgallery will be operating another UK Industrial Heritage Tour, but with a few changes to the ...
