There are some exciting projects in the pipeline; we are going digital!
Using the latest in technology we are bringing Foxton’s history alive. The first part of this is ‘Revealing the Treasures’ funded by an Arts Council bit with match funding from our partners £190,000 is being spent on interpretation at Foxton, some will build the first version of a digital model of the lift, some will provide new interpretation in the museum and on site.
An exciting new experience for our visitors. When complete you will be able to use your mobile phone or tablet to view historic pictures of the site, just by pointing them at a marker.
We are also looking at various projects which will help preserve the inclined plane, and perhaps put back some of the missing parts. All of this may inspire someone to fund the restoration of the lift in the future.
