Stewponey to Cookley…

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.

SDC10815Stone 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

  1. Hello Pip and Roger,
    On reading your blog I have just realised that we are only a mile or so in front of you. At the moment we are moored at Wolverley Court Lock and we will hopefully be moored in Kidderminster sometime today. Its always nice to meet a fellow blogger so it would be great to say hello.
