The forecast for today was much better, but we only saw the sun for about 5 minutes all day, and that was this afternoon. Last night we had nice meals in The Mermaid, a Vintage Inn pub that is very close to the canal, very friendly service and the best Doom Bar I have had for a while.
Last time we passed through Awbridge Lock the tale bridge still had a scaffolding hand rail dating back to the incident in Stourport where a lad was drowned, If they had to fit a rail this is quite good.
Our original plan was to stop at Greensforge visitor moorings by the Navigation pub, but as the weather was the best it has been all day we carried on to Stewponey Lock where tonight we will be doing a crew change
