Birmingham to Stafford Boat Club


Last nights moorings proved to be very good, the first noise we had was when the scaffolders turned up at their yard at 7 am. We were on the move at 9 am heading for the Stourbridge 16 locks. I had to stop and do a weed hatch cleaning job to remove some polly bags as Jannock headed down the flight. Graham had his bike out and back set every lock as he left it making our journey much easier. We stopped for a few minuets at Dadford's shed and Graham went and picked up some boat cleaner/polish from Phil Speight's shop for me. We continued on down the last three locks of the flight to Wordsley Junction and then down the Stourbridge Canal to Stewponey, here we found a trip boat moored for the passengers to have lunch on the lock moorings and later one of the lock pounds lined by anglers. At Stourton Junction we turned right up the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal. The cave at Devils Den still has the locked door on it that BW fitted some years ago. We carried on for about another hour and a half to moor just above Hinksford Bridge at around 1615 hrs.
