Foxton Locks by mave

Foxton Locks

Today we went to Foxton Locks with our friends. It is a staircase of 7 locks on the Grand Union Canal with a safe area halfway up/down where boats can wait their turn to go on. At lunchtime we had a good meal in the Foxton Lock Inn which was almost full to our surprise. It was a good day and we will certainly go back.

A lovely collage of the locks. I've visited there several times, but the walk is too steep for me now.

@carolmw @ziggy77 Thank you so much for commenting. I found it steep Carol, but managed with a rest at every lock.

I find these locks fascinating, have never been to these ones but the Caledonian canal locks at Fort William are amazing too.

@happypat Thanks Pat. It was after seeing the ones at Fort William that I heard about these. They are not as wide but just as imoressive.
