Cross Key Penkridge Friday 17 August 2018

Lazy start this morning as it was an easy day, off at 10 and a hard left at Autherley Junction up to the water point. DSCF0203

By the time we had finished taking water there were boats everywhere and I wanted back down the lock to the Staffs and Worc, "Backwards"

It was then a steady run until we stopped for lunch at Coven. The Cub at the marina looks all closed up and I can't see how a passing boater would get there.

One thing I have noticed along this stretch of canal are these posts where culverts run under the canal.DSCF0217

We continued on to moor for the night by the Cross Keys. Shortly before we arrived we passed this bridge that will need some

serious attention in the near future and these lock moorings that are unusable.DSCF0219
