Black Country Living Museum to Birmingham City Centre

 Supposed to be 14°C, someone forgot to tell the weather that! It's blooming cold again today. Dropped down to the new main line via Brades locks. Took a detour round the Oozells Street loop to see the completed new buildings round there. Now moored at the Old Turn junction end of the Oozells Street loop.
