Acton Trussell to Stretton Wharf

Stretton Boatyard

Probably our longest day of travelling to date, 9 hours 25 minutes, phew!

The weather was very mild so we took advantage of it and pressed on. The first few locks were with us, but when we met a boat coming down the locks they said that there was a boat in front of us, still we had had some in our favour. We passed Monarch & Grimsby moored in  Penkridge, but no sign of Viv or Simon.

Having arrived at Brewood to find no mooring space, we were less inclined to press on to Wheaton Aston, just in case it was the same situation there, so having crossed the Stretton Aqueduct over the A5, we pulled into the towpath opposite Stretton Boatyard. As we were making our approach we had a very brief chat with Sarah & Jim on Chertsey & Bakewell. Chertsey is looking very smart in her new livery, last time we saw her she was in Red Oxide.
