Located in the Central Lowlands, the town of Falkirk is a hive of Scottish culture, industry and history. The Antonine Wall, a UNESCO World Heritage site near Falkirk, marks the most northerly frontier of the Roman Empire in Great Britain. It stretched across the whole of Central Scotland, and many parts of it are still standing today. It is also the town where William Wallace was defeated by the English King Edward I during the 1st Scottish Battle of Independence in 1298. Falkirk is clearly a town with a very long and eventful past, the remnants of which are still evident today.
Nowadays, Falkirk’s most striking landmarks are the two 30-metre tall Kelpie sculptures, which loom imposingly above the entrance to the Forth and Clyde Canal in Helix Park. These massive models of horse-like mythical sea creatures were conceived as a tribute to the integral role horses played in the town’s industrial past and they are the largest equine sculptures in the world. Remarkable in both appearance and design, they were erected in 2013 over the course of 90 days and weigh a staggering 300 tonnes each. Visitors to the site can not only look upon these marvellous sculptures, they can also go inside them to discover the complex feat of engineering that was required during their construction.
