a stroll along Foxton Locks

I’m a bit late writing this post up, but hey ho. When the weather was good a couple of weeks back B and I took a trip out to Foxton Locks, in Leicestershire. Foxton Locks is a series of staircase locks on the Grand Union Canal and is known as an amazing feat of Victorian engineering. They are named after the village of Foxton, which they are close to. There are ten consecutive canal locks, on an inclined plane. It is a popular place to visit as it makes for a lovely and interesting downhill/uphill stroll. Here are the pics I took that day:

It’s a short walk up and down, but still lovely none-the-less and I would definitely recommend it.

In other news, B and I are off on holiday next week to Wales so should have lots to write about soon!
