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.

Penkridge 002 Bridge 81 Staffs and Worcester  Canal.  Work in progress.

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.

2207 locks, 4238.60 miles, 91 tunnels, 130 swing bridges and 58 lift bridges since Nov 2006
