Caxton leaving our mooring at Alvechurch
Having been here before, on the Worcester and Birmingham canal that is, we decided to place ourselves at the summit of the Tardebigge flight of locks ahead of our descent on Sunday.
(Sunday has now arrived and along with it the rain so we have decided to stay put until Monday)
We left Alvechurch late morning having been into the village for a newspaper, completed the crossword and drank more tea. Off we go with three and a half miles to cover. The hire boats had left early to get back to their bases so their was only light traffic about during the journey.
Being waved farewell by my helpers..
Done and dusted, moored below the top lock ready for our descent.
