Today we covered just over 5 miles and 6 locks and it took us just over 4 hours. We did stop at Hanbury wharf to pick up a long throw windlass to try and make it easier to do the locks.

                     Today we went through our first tunnel on Inca.

                                         It's dark and wet in here .

                      Hanbury Wharf on the junction of the Droitwich canal.

We are now moored at Stoke Wharf about 18 miles from Birmingham and are getting ready to tackle the famous Tardebigge flight of over 30 locks.

  5. are you going to have to do some overtime to get through the locks?

  6. For some reason Nicholas , my worm seem's to have lost his wiggle.Any idea's why ???

    And there is no such thing as overtime on the canals. SWW management would love it here .
