5 Locks, 2.46 Miles. Now moored at Penkridge
Despite thunderous looking clouds overhead we slipped our moorings to head off to Penkridge where we have been told there is a good market on Wednesdays and Saturdays. We never stopped here on our last visit up the Staffs and Worcester Canal so we plan to stay here over Easter and have a good look around.
We were lucky that the rain held off and since arriving in Penkridge the sky has cleared and lightened up quite considerably. A good opportunity to go for a stroll after lunch.
