Historical Falkirk, Scotland

The Clydesdale takes its name from Clydesdale, the old name for Lanarkshire, noted for the River Clyde. The Clydesdale was originally used for agriculture, hauling coal in Lanarkshire and heavy hauling in Glasgow.

FALKIRK has produced many famous products and not just famous people over the course of history. The Clydesdale horse, Carnera, once pulled the wagon for local soft drinks company A.G. Barr in the 1930's. Carnera was the biggest working horse in the world apparently, standing over 19 hands high. Pulling three-ton wagons full of soft drinks (Irn Bru) famously made in Scotland. Robert Barr bought Carnera from a Perth farmer in 1930. It took 24 inches of iron bar to make a single shoe for him when the average for other horses was 17.

The Kelpies are a monument to horse powered heritage across Scotland. The Kelpies are 30-metre high horse-head sculptures, standing next to a new extension to the Forth and Clyde Canal, and near River Carron, in The Helix, a new parkland project built to connect 16 communities in the Falkirk Council Area, Scotland.
