Walked the Droitwich

On Saturday last I got Himself to drop the dogs and I off at the start of the Droitwich Barge Canal (Severn end) so that we could walk the length of the two canals (Barge and narrow) to Handley Wharf.

 New lock landings
 The barge canal is very attractive, winding gently through glorious Worcestershire countryside. It is lined throughout with reeds on the towpath side so no moorings available, mores the pity. 
 The remains of a redundant swing bridge
 And the site of the redundant swing bridge with cautionary notice...
 Once through Droitwich town and past the only moorings we are on to the Droitwich narrow canal and going past the construction site of the new Droitwich Spa marina.
