Wednesday 1st July at Foxton Lock
Although we didn't do these locks we did of course have a wander around the site. All the lock sites on the Leicester section of the Grand Union are very well kept indeed and Foxton is no exception. They are beautifully landscaped and seeing them on such a clear albeit very hot day made for some good photographs.

Foxton Boat Services are still based here servicing boats and the provision of consumables etc., mostly ex-stock so there is no need to prior order. They also have a small general store and the pub 61. We purchased oil, air and fuel filters and oil ready for our next engine service - it was good to see Sam Matts again.

Foxton Locks Inn - a nice place to watch the world go by.
