Just as we were togging up to leave Rugeley on a rainy days cruising we heard a big engine above us. This is what we saw when we emerged from the boat. A very narrow lane runs along the embankment above the canal towpath. The wheels of the crane had run off the side of it into the soft muddy edge and it had tipped over at a jaunty angle.
Needless to say we didn’t hang about to see what happened, but cruised off into the rain. On reaching Fradley Junction we turned left onto the Coventry Canal to moor on the 24hr space. The Squirrel was fired up to dry everything out, then we put our feet up for a while all cosy with warm drinks and a snack, perfick,
