Union Canal Unlocked


Union Canal Unlocked is a partnership between Re-Union Canal Boats, Scottish Canals and Scottish Waterways Trust. It was only possible thanks to the generous funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund, Edinburgh City Council, West Lothian Council, Falkirk Council and Sustrans.

We would like to thank the many people who volunteered and assisted with the collection of information and oral histories. We would also like to thank the National Library of Scotland, Historic Environment Scotland, the Royal Commision on Ancient and Historic Monuments of Scotland, the British Geological Survey, Bill Hall, Guthrie Hutton, Stenlake Publishing, the Almond Valley Heritage Trust, Falkirk Museums, Linlithgow Union Canal Society, East Dunbartonshire Local Studies, Sandy Paton, Capital Collections, and the Seagull Trust for allowing us to use their images.

The App and associated website were developed by James Perry. The Union Canal logo, colour scheme and graphics were created by Studio LR.
