Number 28 | The canal lift …

Today I saw an actual olde worlde canal lift down at Foxton Locks.

The Inclined Plane Lift, to give it its proper name, was built during the Victorian era between 1900 and 1911. I also went round the canal boat museum, learning about the history of boats and other assorted information. It was actually quite fun.

Here are two quite badly taken photographs of the remains of the boat lift.
