Gailey – Penkridge – Acton Trussell

A short cruise from Gailey, found moorings at Penkridge and had a walk into the village. We have passed through on many occasions but never stopped. Enjoyed a lovely meal at the Littleton Arms with Paul and Jo, it was certainly worth the little walk to get there. Left Penkridge cruising past a national fishing match, then into total mayhem as we came across an orienteering event. It is not often we feel sorry for fisherman, but mountain bikes were racing on the towpath and canoes were zig zagging on the water.
