Foxton Locks
looking north.

Half way down the staircase looking north along the Grand Union Leicester Arm. There are two staircases of five narrow beam locks which drop the canal 23 metres (75 feet) down a steep hillside. Opened in 1814 they were replaced by Foxton Inclined Plane in 1900. The plane consisted of two large tanks which were winched up an incline and able to take wider craft in a fraction of the time with no water loss. However as the Watford Locks at the other end of the summit level were never widened the plane could never be used to capacity and high operating costs resulted in its closure and reuse of the locks from 1911.
