Caxton Moored at Wilmcote
We pulled pins at 8.40 this morning - MR had slipped away 30minutes earlier!!! No, I couldn't believe either. Our aim is to get up through the Lapworth locks ahead of the first stoppages on the 8th November so it was 15 locks today, and a nine mile walk and it will be 22 locks tomorrow and a three mile walk, so easy day then...
This house is at the wharf at Wilmcote and the detail of the lead work around the bay windows, topped by a balcony on the first floor and yet more lead work on the 2nd floor is really quite attractive.

Preston Bagot Lock cottage, greatly extended as you can see.
Bucket lock cottage
I cannot recall the name of this lock cottage but it is more authentic. Many of the other barrel roofed lock cottages have trebled in size from their original design.
