Foxton Locks is home to two amazing feats of engineering in the heart of the Leicestershire countryside. The Grade II listed locks on the Leicester Line of the Grand Union Canal are over 200 years old. … This impressive flight of ten locks are the longest set of staircase locks in Britain.
Mike says “Good hard surface car park and nice indoor / outdoor Inn for Lunch.
The Lock Staircase is impressive as well as an Inclined Plane restoration project. Lots of narrow boats up and down the staircase”.
