Foxton Locks, lower staircase. Narrowboat emerging from the lower end of Foxton Locks, on the Grand Union Canal, near Market Harborough, Leicestershire, UK. Foxton Locks has ten locks grouped into two 'staircases'. Each staircase comprises five locks, each lock opening directly into the next. Built between 1801 and 1814, Foxton Locks are the largest example of such an arrangement on the English canal system. They are an important example of industrial and transport heritage, and are popular with recreational users. Photographed in August 2013.
