Foxton LE16 7RA England
The Foxton Inclined Plane was situated on what is now the Leicester Section of the Grand Union Canal. The lift was opened in 1900 to provide working narrow boats with a faster way of climbing the 75ft hill than using the existing 10 locks. The inclined plane was closed in 1911 and traffic returned to the locks. The Foxton Inclined Plane Trust was formed i n1980 and is working towards the restoration of the inclined plane.
