Masterpiece of Engineering

This week’s challenge is Masterpiece. This is the flight of 10 staircase locks at Foxton, a masterpiece of engineering built between 1810 and 1814. It takes about 45 minutes to through the full flight if you have the luxury of no waiting. Now a Grade II Listed structure and popular tourist attraction, it is fascinating to see it working and well worth a visit if you are in the area.

  2. so enjoyed these photographs. Funnily enough, I’d contemplated posting one of the French locks for this challenge. But this was a lovely trip down memory lane. We used to be narrowboaters on the Grand Union, based at Welton Hythe. Thanks for the memories.
