Birmingham City Centre to Hawne Basin Dudley No.2 Canal

Set off this morning to immediately suspect there was something on the prop, and there was, but soon got it cleared.

Inside Netherton Tunnel. Having passed through Netherton tunnel to Windmill End, we turned left onto the Dudley No.2 Canal, new waters for us as we have never done this section before.

We had to wait for 4 boats to exit Gosty Hill tunnel before we could go in. One of the boats was “Colehurst” with Brian and Brenda on-board, whom we know very well.
