This canal passes through some beautiful countryside, tall cool woodland and interesting sandstone cuttings. A boat was exiting Debdale Lock which enabled us to glide straight. We were helped up through by a chap who looked official, but was not a Canal and River Trust volunteer. We then went on to moor in front of nb What a Lark just below Whittington Lock.
It was a nice quiet night here so we slept well, then we were up early next morning and away. We paused at Kinver to empty and fill tanks, then sat of the railway sleeper bench to have our elevensies. The horse tunnels and circular spill weirs are great features on the Staffs & Worcs Canal too. The cottage beside Hyde Lock, with the mini lock gates into the garden, is for sale.
