Foxton Inclined Plane Trust is an Independent Charity.
Our prime concern is the preservation of the victorian Barge Lift which ran from 1900 to 1911.
We work closely with Canal and River Trust to make Foxton one of the best waterway visitor sites in the country.
FIPT runs the award winning museum at Foxton locks - the Canal Museum at the Boilerhouse.
