Volunteering At Foxton

The Foxton Inclined Plane Trust and The Canal and River Trust are charities with limited funds. Both organisations rely heavily on Volunteers to make Foxton the wonderful place that it is. FIPT also operates The Canal Museum at the BoilerHouse.  We cannot open all of the time without the help of our volunteer.
