Just north of Pendeford Bridge

A little bit of drizzle on and off today, but otherwise not a bad day, though very windy.

The deep cuttings along this part of the Shroppie are quite interesting, but otherwise it’s fairly boring, particularly for the steerer as it’s just long straight sections with only the one lock at Wheaton Aston to break the journey.

We stopped for the night on the SUCS moorings just north of bridge 4. Like most this canal the side here suffers with the “Shoppie ledge”. A concrete ledge jutting out into the canal just below water level. This make mooring difficult. We had a high wind to contend with too so it took a couple of attempts to get properly moored up.

The evening was lovely (though windy) with a gorgeous sunset.
