Foxton Locks

Today we visited, by car, the famous flight of Foxton Locks and the neighbouring Canal Museum. Next to the locks is the site of the only inclined plain which used to lift the boats up to the canal summit much quicker than using the flight of 10 locks.

It was built in 1900 but was dismantled ten years later as it proved to be too expensive to maintain. Amazing engineering. One of many we keep coming across on these wonderful British Canals
