Another uneventful journey today. The Staffs and Worcs is very pretty along this stretch, with locks in some lovely settings, not much in the way of views though, as it is very overhung by trees or bordered by rocky cliffs for most of the way. Moored now at Cookley, as to go further would take us into Kidderminster. We will probably take advantage of the canal-side Sainsbury’s tomorrow.
Stone post marking the county boundary between Staffordshire and Worcestershire. It was unveiled in 1999, and we last passed this way on the day of the unveiling – so it’s 12 years since we were down this way.
4.4 miles and 4 locks
