You’ll find out about how the Union Canal was shaped by East/West rivalry, global trade and even its connections to Bonny Prince Charlie and Napoleon. Along the way, you can explore the engineering of the canal and it’s structures, learning why they were built, how they work and the impact they’ve had on the surrounding communities for the last 200 years.
