Foxton Locks is made up of te largest flight of locks on the English canal system. It's fascinating to watch the narrow boats navigate their way from top to bottom (or visa versa) through the ten locks, which are all manually operated by the boatsmen. The surrounding area is full of a diverse range of wildlife from ducks, herons, rare breeds and many more.
Once you've taken in the wonders of the locks you must take some time to visit the fascinating museum (located in the former boiler house for the incline plane’s steam engine), the well-stocked gift shop or take a boat trip down the canal. After all these activities what better way to unwind that to have a cream tea, pint or even a meal at one of the two canal side pubs; The Foxton Locks Inn or Bridge 61.
There are many other pubs in the area and lots of other attractions such as Rutland Water, Wistow Maze, the historic market towns of Uppingham and Oakham to name a few.
