Brewood to Rodbaston Lock

It was nice to be cruising again after a lazy weekend. The weather is still sunny, fingers crossed it will last, but forecast is not too good. Turned today off the Shroppie and back on to the Staffs & Worcs. It has still been busy with boats, we were going to water at Gailey, but it was bedlam. The hire base were three abreast and already a queue at the water point. So we decided to head straight for the lock, with a quick dash to the shop for the obligatory ice cream. Mooring just above Rodbaston lock no 35.

Sharp turn left on to the Staffs & Worcs


Maybe this is the residential heron from last year’s photo


Eventually on our way through Pendeford Rockin, after waiting for five boats to pass, then we still met another going through, luckily not far from a passing point.
