Approaching Lapworth June 2014

Our Summer Cruise 2014 - Day 15
Completed 4.5 miles, 2 lift bridges and 4 locks

In glorious sunshine, we continued heading east on the level pound that is the same level as the Birmingham Main Line at Factory Locks!
We were in no hurry today and enjoyed the wooded areas and passing moored boats.
There were two lift bridges of the mechanical hydraulic type. Chris did these - the second one was in poor repair and we only just crept through under it.

Soon we were at the top of Lapworth Locks and easily went down 4 locks to our mooring for the night - on the right towpath - ready for painting tomorrow!

Chris continues her sewing marathon on the front hold cushion covers!
