|The diesel pump is behind the A frame sign. |
Part of the visitor moorings have been removed for the new Waterbus stop.
|Although we didn't have a look I'm guessing this block is toilets and showers|
|Right to Wednesbury Old Canal which leads into the Walsall Canal.|
|The Ridgeacre canal to the right. Ryder Green locks L|
Met a couple of boats near the bottom which helped immensely with our passage but what didn't help was the amount of shopping trolleys we rolled over and the lack of water!
|Looking down the flight with Ian walking to set the next lock|
|Bit worried about this pair. Looked very suspicious especially with that pony. They did acknowledge my greeting so maybe I was wrong to think bad of them.|
|Entrance to Ocker Hill Tunnel Branch. The one visitor mooring is the space on the left just beyond the bridge.|
|Moored by the now disused BW offices. Facilities are still available through the gate. BW key needed. This is the junction of Tame Valley and Walsall canal. We will turn right onto the Tame Valley tomorrow on our way to Longwood boat rally|
|No longer used by BW. Windows smashed and boarded. Says something for the area! Thats why the Ocker Hill Branch is a Godsend for safety.|
|There is no way onto the towpath from here so if you wanted to go out...forget it.|
