The cracking bridge at Hack Green. It was on the winter stoppage list 2011/2012, but then cancelled. No sign of it on this winter's list, so it continues to disintigrate
After 4 days of rain, the fields are getting rather soggy
This way to the secret bunker.... not so secret then!
Welcome to Market Drayton
The amout of water we'd had over the past few days made the bywashes at Tyrley particularly tricky
On to Woodseaves. Again, due to the amount of rain there had been many landslips, resulting in the towpath being closed. We were very concerned about getting through this bit due to the amount of rain & half expected it to be closed when we got there. Rain had been non stop for days and days, and this is a particularly "iffy" stretch, prone to landslides.
The end wall at Woodseaves looked like a waterfall
The Anchor at High Offley, no time to stop this time unfortunately
Heron with no neck at Brewood!
The beautiful avenue bridge near Brewood
Lots more herons around Autherley Junction
Up the Wolverhampton 21 locks, this one is Dunstall Park Bridge Lock next to Wolverhampton Racetrack
Under the railway bridges and passed the incinerator
Beautiful row of houses at the top of the Wolverhampton locks
After a pitstop at the Parkhead boat rally, on which I have blogged already, we then had to go downhill again, through the 8 Delph locks (below) then down the Stourbridge 16.
Our mooring for a few days to catch our breath, between Stourbridge and Stourton, which leaves Nemo rather relaxed.....
