About Turn......Back To Swindon (Staffs & Worcs Canal)


Filling up with water at Greensforge Services
Today we decided to turn around and head back up the Staffs & Worcs Canal towards Swindon. Neither of us wanted to go to  Stourport-on-Severn as we had no plans to go on the river. We cruised downstream to the next winding hole and then came back through Kinver Lock. Ben and I had a two hour walk then it was back on the boat for bacon sandwiches. Several locks later we stopped after Greensforge Lock to use the services choosing the tap nearest the lock as it's the fastest, the other one takes forever. One more lock and we moored opposite the cricket club, last time we moored here there was a match even though it was the middle of the week.
