Foxton Locks
Foxton Locks, taken 9 years ago
It's often the little details that are missed, and yet tell can us so much. On each of the ten locks this date is carved into a brick. The famous inclined plane only operated for ten years or so, and in 1909 the locks were rebuilt, being brought back into service the following year.
