Summer Cruise#2-Day15


Met a nice family on a hire boat from Mercia, they were off thru Wolverhampton and then on to Brum! They left their mooring at 0647! We were still horizontal!

A quiet day – no more locks – aiming for Brewood (pron. Brood) – meeting up with a colleague of Viv’s from her work days (remember them??)

A lot of landowners required slightly more elaborate bridge work, if the wretched canal were to go thru their land! (Chillington)

Just 3 odd hours and we’re here. Brewood.

Lovely village – the railway never came this way and so the village retains it’s old world characteristics. Marvellous butchers (Maidens) and this odd building (Speedwell Castle – named after the horse the won!)
