I think Birmingham looks so pretty at night, when the canal is like a mirror and the lights reflect in the water.
I cant say I have ever noticed this chap on the roof before, a rough guess its a pub probably called the Britania
Down at Salford Junction I pushed the bows round as if we were going up the Tame Valley so that I could reverse up the Grand Union to Star City where we planned to moor for the night. Things went well until Nechells Stop lock, I was a few inches off line so gave it a good burst of forward to get us back on track and got a complete blade full, polly bags, heavy duty polythene and some kind of clothing, end result we failed to straighten up in time but still had enough drive to get to the moorings.
3.5 miles, 24 locks in 4 hours.
