A really lovely day weather wise, much better than we had expected. It was clear blue skies and bright sunshine almost all day. We set off around 9:00 and went straight down Bratch. I had a long chat with one of the lockies who was furious about the situation with the BW directors awarding themselves bonuses, whilst asking some of the staff to put in more hours on a voluntary basis.
It was obviously fishing match day. It seemed like half the men in the West Midlands were out competing. The towpath was lined with fishermen evenly spaced for mile after mile!
After a breakfast stop in Swindon we arrived back at Kinver just after 3 o’clock. Teresa & Lins had to be back home for a family do, so we packed up and left about 4:00.
