Day 22: Moored after Newtown Bridge, Stourbridge Canal
Our schedule gives us a 'day-in-hand', so we used it here in a delightful rural, south facing spot, on the best sunny day for a while. We had a bbq, using the Cobb on top of the hatch.
It worked well, especially as the towpath here is used by cyclists and runners.
The Cobb BBQ working well!
This section of the canal is part of the 615 mile Monarch's Way – tracing the route taken by the fleeing King Charles I after his defeat at the Battle of Worcester in 1651.
In the evening I walked up to see the locks and tomorrow's route.There were 4 boats moored along this stretch so obviously popular and in the map for a future cruise.
