Stretton Wharf to Wheaton Aston to Penkridge

Penkridge Cross Keys

Marmalade on toast for breakfast, and we set off for Wheaton Aston. We arrived at Turners and filled up with diesel, 477.2 litres which came to £371.50, an impressive 77.8p a litre. Especially so as he was expecting a new delivery today and it was going up another 1p a litre, good timing for us then. I reversed back to the winding hole and turned, then pulled into the sanitary station, for topping up water and disposing. We then carried on, in what turned out to be a very sunny and warm day, not the rain we desperately need. All 5 locks from Gailey down to Penkridge were against us, consequently we arrived at the Cross Keys as daylight was failing at 6:10pm. Yet another long (for us) but rewarding day.

Keith.
