Foxham, SN15 4NJ

Just south of the site sign is the restored Foxham Upper Lock – restored some years ago by volunteers of the former Foxham-Lyneham Branch of what was then called the Wilts & Berks Canal Amenity Group – and on the towpath near to the site sign is a seat in memory of Paul Rigby who was one of the volunteers who helped with the bricklaying. The Wilts & Berks Canal Amenity Group was re-branded some years ago and is now known as Wilts & Berks Canal Trust.
On the canal north of the site sign is a steel frame bascule-type lift bridge – built to enable the farmer to access the uphill part of the farm with the heavier vehicles and machinery that have become more common in the 200 years since the canal was first built. The design and construction of the bridge was done by volunteers except that the steel framework was fabricated and installed by a local Engineering company.

Continuing north there is a timber lift bridge which is a replica of the many wooden lift bridges which were built on the canal when it was new. The brickwork was restored was restored by volunteers, and the assembly of the timber deck was done by the local team helped by volunteers of the Waterway Recovery Group (part of the Inland Waterways Association).

The local team of volunteers of Wessex Waterways Restoration Trust maintains the towpath, which is open on an informal basis by kind permission of the farmer.
