Shrewley to Lapworth Top Lock

Having rested for a day (Thursday) after doing the Hatton flight, and raining all day yesterday, we set off in glorious sunshine this morning. Approaching Kingswood junction where we turned left for the link between the Grand Union Canal, and the Stratford Canal.

Jo took the helm for some of the locks, despite not having done so since we travelled up this flight of locks a year ago, she was very confident and coped very well.

Now moored above Lapworth top lock having done the flight of 19 locks in 2¾ hours,  and quite a few of them were against us.
