Sunday morning dawned, dull but DRY, so off we set at 7.45 to tackle 24 locks that would take us down the Delph 8 and then Stourbridge 16 and on towards Stourbridge town.
Looking down the Delph flightNb. Debdale to ask where we were and could they visit? Could they visit, too right they could visit - as I mentally reviewed where the extra windlasses were!
Here we go, the first of the Stourbridge 16.
Looking down the flight towards Dadfords Shed and the bottle kiln of the Redhouse Glassworks.At lock eight I spotted the terrible two, Adam and Adrian, approaching us up the towpath, the cavalry had arrived!
Adam and Adrian working hard, well hard..ish
Dadford's Shed a restored wooden warehouse located between lock 10 and lock 11and I believe, Phil Speight's place.
Caxton fitting VERY snugly in lock eleven
Caxton moored up on the town arm
After completing the lock flight we turned on to the town arm and headed towards Stourbridge. Leaving Joe to helm Caxton, Adam, Adrian and I climbed aboard and got the coffee and tea underway. Thank you for the assistance gents, lovely to see you again!
We stayed here in Stourbridge for a couple of nights which enabled us to get in some provisions, fill the water tank and collect our post before we continue our journey.
