Bratch Locks to Brewood

Left Bratch in lovely sunshine enjoying the open countryside, but didn’t manage to miss a heavy shower early afternoon. We decided as we were so close and looking for somewhere nice to moor and eat that we would detour onto the Shropshire Union canal and stop at Brewood.

Hi
Twas only a short detour, honest. Only to find the Admiral Rodney does not serve food on a Tuesday. The Bridge was a worthy substitute though. xx
