A lazy day today. We didnt get up til after 9 o’clock, had breakfast then went for a walk. We walked along the towpath down to Whittington Horse bridge, then followed the little lane back up into Kinver. After the previous day’s rain the River Stour was running much faster and fuller than I’d ever seen it before.
On our way back we managed to find the way into the public park area that is the other side of the river from the vistor moorings. We had often watched the local residents walking their dogs in this area, but didnt know how they got there.
We thought about staying here all day, but in the afternoon the sun came out so we slowly chugged the 2 miles and one lock down to just before Cookley tunnel and spent the night there.
