Day 27: Moored below the Adderley Locks15 miles and 10 locks in 8 engine hours
It's a fair run from Norbury Junction northwards, much of it in open farmland.It starts though, with Grub Street Cutting and the iconic High Bridge.

The canal has also long lengths of moored boats and so a reduced speed extends the cruising time.
We arrived at the Tyrley Locks and went down with a queue of boats and followed on in a pleasant cruise to Market Drayton.

I had intended to moor at the top of the Adderley Locks but when we tried to get into the visitor moorings, the (in)famous Shroppie 'shelf' kept us a good 2 foot out. Our tyres are at 18” so no good for this!
So, we went down the 5 locks at Adderley and got the last mooring spot.
