We have cruised the Stourbridge canal several times, but not the Town Arm. So we decided to make the short journey up there for one night.
The weather was good and we set off from our mooring at about 11:00. The weather clear and sunny and after a pleasant two horus or so we arrived at the Bonded Warehouse. As we were winding we heard someone call out “What are you doing here?”. It was Chris from NB Helen, which normally moors just down from us at Kinver, but was in the dry dock being blacked.
We found somewhere to moor up and then walked back to have a chat with Chris and his team. A quick lunch then up the town to wander round the shops and get some food from Waitrose.
Being more or less in the middle of the town we expected it to be rather noisy at night but in fact, other than some boaters returning loudly at 4:00am, it was fairly quiet.
