3 miles, 19 locks
We started up the Lapworth flight and all was going well until we saw this:
Canal and River Trust were carrying out maintenance on Lock 14, but it wasn’t planned so there had been no warning. That meant we were delayed by over three hours.
This meant that by the time we got to the top there wasn’t time to get through to Birmingham so we decided to stop and make our way in on Thursday.
We’re tied up in Hockley Heath, in a nice spot just by the Wharf pub.
