Droitwich to Worcester

Yet another great day. Wall to wall sunshine all day. After breakfast we left Droitwich along the Barge Canal. Such a lovely secluded canal once out of Droitwich, with a narrow reedy channel its more like a small river.

The wide beam locks at Ladywood are in very pretty surroundings, small rolling hills and trees.

Lovely blue sky.

Swan and Cynets.

Bit of a delay at one of the locks as Canal and River Trust where doing bridge repairs and had to move their work boat over.

Nearing the end of the canal there are some nice original bridges spanning the canal.

All to soon we reached the locks dropping down onto the River Severn.
where we turned left towards Worcester.

Severn View.

The Severn is nothing spectacular with its high banks, not much to view.
It was just a few miles to Worcester, passing the Cathedral before turning into Diglis Bottom lock.

Moored for the night just outside Diglis Basin.
