Onto the Staffs & Worcester…

It was a bright and sunny morning for a change as we set out for our last couple of hours on the Shroppie.  A quick stop just before Autherley Junction to visit the Morrison’s for supplies, through the stop lock and onto the Staffs and Worcester.  We wanted to get clear of Wolverhampton before we stopped, so past Aldersley Junction with the BCN main line and on to Compton, where we had planned to stop and visit Limekiln Chandlery.  No chance of that, all the moorings were full, so down the locks we went and we are now moored just south of Compton near Bridge 55.
