A Trip To Kinver

Relections on the Staffs & Worcs Canal

Today it was a mixture of walk the dog, working through the locks and enjoying cruising the very green Staffs and Worcs Canal. A few boats coming up from Stourport meant we had some full locks for a change. We arrived at Kinver Lock and watched as the man up a ladder at Wilson's of Kinver removed the letters of the sign from the side of the building.......oh no were they closed! We moored  below the lock and NB Caxton were already there.  We then went to Wilson's to find they were replacing the letters of the sign as they'd been damaged in the storm the other night. We ordered a cratch board and cover, which is why we came to Kinver.

Hi,

No money has changed hands so we'll just have to wait and see what happens! Wilsons are still going to the Crick Show. They did say the furniture and cratch business are separate.

Thanks for letting us know, Elsie & Eric
