Just Past Kidderminster

NB Bendigedig at Wolverley Lock

Today has been a lovely sunny day and we've been cruising along the winding Staffs and Worcester Canal towards Stourport. Ben and I passed the mooring on the canal where we cross into Worcestershire and Eric cruised through Cookley Tunnel while we continued our walk along the towpath. At Debdale Lock there's a man made cave next to the lock- I can't remember what it was used for.

Next came Wolverley Lock where there's a cafe selling amongst other things bacon butties- you could smell them but we didn't stop today. Just one more lock at Wolverley Court and then we were on the outskirts of Kidderminster with canal side housing.

We stopped by Sainsbury's as Maplin's is on the same site- Eric wanted some satellite cable and connectors. He needed to make a new section to connect the satellite finder as the short section supplied with it was suffering from overuse. He also had a new chamois from Halfords as his old one was rather holey.

We moved on through Kidderminster Lock to stop for food shopping at Tesco and then find a mooring a few locks further down out in the country where we could pick up the dot in the sky. Ben's having a sleep now after a busy day and Eric is enjoying the football!
