Anyway, thats my rant over with. So we have made it to Fazeley although at one point I despaired ever getting there. Did all of the Athersone flight (11 locks) in one hour fifty minutes. Far cry from when we only managed 6 in one hour forty last week. It was one up and one down on all of the locks. That doesn't happen very often.

Gone 3 pm it was before we arrived at the junction. Then it was turn right onto the Birmingham Fazeley Canal, stop on the facilities, which, incidentally, does not have any rubbish bins anymore and the valve handle to the water point is broken so Ian had to make use of his mole grips before we could fill the tank. But good news....at least the elsan is in working order!
On schedule to get to Fradley tomorrow as planned but I expect another early start is on the cards.

And today's wildlife,
