You will find a flight of ten canal locks and the Victorian plane boat lift at Foxton Locks, which has given it the status of one of the most important industrial heritage sites on the continent.
Book a boat trip, or download the Foxton Discover app to help you explore. Get an ice-cream on a warm day or stop off for hot or cold food and drinks at the Top Lock Coffee Stop.
