Back to Rural

After a very quiet night in the Oozell Loop and a morning in Birmingham city centre for more retail therapy for Gill we left Birmingham today. We headed through Brindley Place, under Broad Street Tunnel and onto the Worcester and Birmingham at Worcester Bar.

Looking back at Worcester bar.

Very cold today as we went along past Edgebaston and the University. At Bournville we met Narrowboat Albert /http://nbalbert.blogspot.co.uk/ who alerted me to a raft of wood all tied together in a bridge hole, thanks.
We left the Worcester and Birmingham and turned onto the Stratford Canal at Kings Norton.
Kings Norton Guilottine Lock ahead.

Eventually we returned to rural pastures after Warstock, good to be out in the country again, I do like the inner city canals, seeing the industrial heritage but eventually the graffiti and rubbish wears you down.
Near Dickens Heath.

Moored at Earlswood tonight, will have a couple of pints in the clubhouse at Earlswood Motor Yacht Club tonight, very friendly place but you wont find any yachts here, only narrowboats. Got colder as the day wore on, looks as though it will be even colder the next couple of days.
