Ten Bob Note  
 

Wednesday 11th July 2007

Location: Alvechurch, Worcs  N52:20:60 W1:58:15   

Today: 7 miles, 36 locks. Total distance: 216 miles.   Total locks: 206

Warm and some sunny spells.

Another busy day today,not many miles but lots of locks.

We worked our way up the Tardebigge flight, it was hard work but enjoyable and the scenery is wonderful. The paddles on the top gate are very hard work to raise and all of the locks are fairly deep at around seven feet.

We arrived at Alvechurch mid afternoon and walked into town to get the paper etc. There is a co-op in the village plus a post office and a fish and chip shop. It’s a nice little village, mostly housing.

The Boat and Railway, Stoke Works, good food.
