Early start as it’s a lovely morning. A pleasant day chugging along the beautiful Staffs & Worcs.
We get to the bottom of the Bratch locks at about 3:30. We are third in the queue and the lockie says that there are two coming down, so it will be about an hour before our turn.
Heddi sits reading in the lovely sunshine, an I mess about with a few odd jobs.
Up through the staircase and out the top by just after five. We moor at the end of the visitor’s moorings. We had thought of having a barbecue, but the temperature has dropped off little so we leave that for another day.
