We moved on from Bullock’s Lane Bridge, leaving at around 10. Back up Falling Sands Lock, with a quick stop to recover a log floating past (waste not, want not) and then Caldwell Lock.
The outskirts of Kidderminster come soon after the lock, and George and Carol pulled over to visit the handy canalside Tesco’s. You have to watch out for submerged shopping trollies when coming in to moor here.
Having passed Rock’n'Roll we had the advantage of empty locks, so I didn’t have to leave Mags long on the uninviting lock landing under the road below Kidderminster Lock.
Unfortunately, a blight on urban canals. Whoever introduced those ubiquitous plastic bottles and fast-food containers should be taken out and shot…..
We made our own shop-stop at Sainsburys on the north edge of the town, then a mile or so to Wolverley Court Lock, pulling over just above.
R’n’R arrived about 30 minutes later.
We intend to stay here now, at least for tomorrow.
