The Thomas lift
The Lift replaced the locks from 1900 - 1911
10 locks in 2 flights of 5 - the fastest and most economical locks on the cut
Visiting historic Boats
We have lots of boats going past every day, but we love the 'old'ones!
We Love Foxton Locks and The Boat Lift
FIPT (Foxton Inclined Plane Trust) has a primary aim to foster interest in the Boat Lift often known as the Inclined Plane. We also love the unique Foxton locks and the 3,000 miles of inland navigable waterways. We run the independent Foxton Canal Museum. On its doorstep we have the staircase of 10 locks. The Museum is in the reconstructed boiler house for the Boat Lift, which used to run down from its back wall.
