As we approach Armitage (or “Plum Pudding”) tunnel Carolyn and Curly have to go ahead on foot to check that no boats are coming in the opposite direction. The roof of the tunnel was removed many years ago and now its one way working through this very narrow section.Luckily I made it through with no scratches.
Arriving in Rugeley we picked up this mooring. Its very handy for the town and the new Tesco store which is next to the canal. Although we have heard of a few problems with kids jumping on boats and being a bit of a nuisance in this area we will stay the night here and then head out early in the morning..
