Foxton Inclined Plane: upper arm

As Ray correctly identified, yesterday's photo was of the stop gates on the upper arm of Foxton Inclined Plane.

This is the view of the upper arm on the right, with the top of the Foxton Locks on the left.

And this is the view from the other end of the upper arm, where a bund (in the foreground) stops the water cascading down the hill.

Looking the other way from the bund this old boat is lying on the approach to where a caisson would be ready to receive it.
