Tardebigge

We came up past the Worcester Warriors rugby ground. we didnt realise it was so close to the canal.  Last week Dave came here by train to see the Cornish Pirates beat Worcester 23 - 21. Next time it'll be by boat!  He did enjoy wearing his Cornish Pirates hat round Worcester after this result.

We managed to find the only non-Banks' pub since we left Worcester.  Fantastic.  Looking forward to a nice Sunday tea in the pub.  Would you believe it - they were closing at 6.30pm due to a private function, just as well I suppose - they didn't do food on a Sunday evening.  Never mind, we had a lovely couple of pints before they kicked us out.  Just as well we prefer 'early doors'.


Are we nearly there yet?  Lock 57 on the Tardebigge flight.  Lovely set of locks, very well behaved, although the top paddle gear is extremely difficult to wind. It does help when it's a beautiful autumn day for boating.
