I have uploaded our proposed route to CanalPlanAC if anyone wants to see where we are likely to be. It gets updated with actual position each night.
This morning we spent a couple of hours going round the Worcester Pottery Museum, well worth a visit, kids under 16 go in free and oldies like us was £6-10 with gift aid so the Government gives them a bit more.
It was mid day before we pushed off and of course it started to rain, by now there were only two of us left on the mooring. The first to locks were with us, but the rest against us. We met a Volockie at Gregory's who set the lock ready and between his litter picking gave us a hand up the next 4 locks. I think these mile posts are new since we were last this way as I don't recall seeing them. A short lunch break between Bilford Top Lock and Blackpool Lock and then off again to moor for the night in quite a noisy spot just before the A449.
6 Miles 10 Locks in 2½ hours
