August 2008

Not content with four Anderton-type lifts and a modern hightech ascenseur, Walloon also boasts an inclined plane. This is at Ronquiere and lifts the boat sixty metres up the hill on a railway-like structure. Enormous wheels and pulleys pull the two water tanks up and down accompanied by eerie groanings and moanings.
Strictly speaking we don't need to use it but how could we resist a little detour for the experience?
