Wilmcote Bottom Lock to Wilmcote.

What a morning! 

We set off at 6:30am so we would not be travelling in the heat of the sun. 3 locks up there was a notice from the lock keeper to not proceed any further as he was running water down the flight. he let us proceed at 8:00am.


One of the National Trust plaques at one of the locks from when the National Trust owned the canal.


The 1st of the Stratford canal footbridges.


We got through the locks to grind to a halt with our bow stuck on the bottom in bridge 60. Quick phone call to CRT and a man appeared soon after, he was going to have to go to the next lock 3 miles up the canal to let water down.


1hr 20mins later we were on the move. 

Now moored up near Featherbed Lane Bridge No.59 in Wilmcote. 

Phew!


Keith.
