Foxton Locks July 2012 : A flight of 10 locks in two staircases of 5 locks on the Grand Union Canal in southern Leicestershire. Originally built in 1810 and opened to traffic in 1814 the locks form the northern terminus to the 20 mile summit level through Husbands  Bosworth, Crich and the Watford flight. In 1900 the site also gained an inclined plane as a solution to the restricted size of the locks, however this was mothballed in 1911 and dismantled in 1928.

In recent years the Foxton Locks Trust has set about restoring and clearing the site and the inclined plane, although no longer usable, is now part of a heritage discovery trial. The locks are a popular tourist attraction in the area as well.

Scotland : These shots were taken on a short break in Callender a village in the Trossachs, Scotland. Unfortunately the weather was somewhat less than perfect for even a British summer!!  That's why most of these shots are a bit dull and overcast.  Still a beautiful part of the world though, whatever the weather.
