The gales had ceased by morning and the sky looked promising so off we went to moor at Fazeley Junction overnight. Next day we ascended the two Glascote locks which were both in our favour, then filled with water at the top.
Then it was a short pleasant cruise on along to moor at Polesworth with the autumnal colours opposite. In the afternoon I walked into the village around the old remains of the Abbey. I managed to get into the church to looked at the stained glass, but didn’t see anything worth photographing.
