Wootton Wawen to Wilmcote Locks

Filled with diesel at Anglo Welsh as we left Wootton Wawen. Crossing over the impressive Edstone Aqueduct, looking down on to a road, a river and a railway at 28 feet high and 475 feet long. After passing through Wilmcote we then had the flight of 11 locks and moored at the bottom.
