Stourport Basin

Left home in two cars, left one at Slimbridge and then on up to Kidderminster. Unloaded and went to start the engine, turned over OK, but wouldn’t fire. I suspected that the cylinder glow plugs were not coming on. A poke about in the engine to tighten up some wiring and bingo, we were off.

At Caldwall lock we were delayed as one of the bottom gates wouldn’t open. A while prodding around with the boat hook must have moved something, though I don’t know what. The original plan was to spend the night on the river moorings, but by now it was getting late so we settled for the Upper basin instead.

Ate & went to bed!
