Netherwich Basin

After an excellent evening with Simon & Karen yesterday we said our goodbyes this morning at seven o’clock and set off. We reached Stourport about 9:30 and were down onto the river by ten. It’s been another really hot day, but travelling down stream was pleasantly cool with a lovely breeze Hawford junction was reached

Droitwich Marina

We hadn’t decided which way to go back, but as we were already past the W&B lock entrance, and we hadn’t gone up the Droitwich canals since 2011 we chose to carry on up the Severn to Hawford. Also this meant that we avoided to two large locks up into Diglis basin that I struggle


There weather forecast was right, it was really cold for most of the way. We set off at 6:50 and locked out from the docks down on to the Severn at just after 9 o’clock. This journey starts off going up the “parting” which is a narrow bywater off of the main river. It’s narrower

The lock keeper on Avon lock doesn’t come on duty until 8:00 in the morning. We were ready to go by 7:30, so first Bath Tub then Just Heaven were moved over to the water point by the lock to top up the tanks. The lockie saw us there and was prompt in opening up,


Eight o’clock and we were setting off down the river. It had rained heavily overnight and we were still getting odd showers. The trip down the Severn from Worcester to Tewkesbury isn’t particularly interesting! There is not much to see because of tne high flood banks. On arrival at Avon lock we had a bit


Drove up to arrive at the marina just after 10 o’clock. As we were unloading Simon brought The Bath Tub down to tie up temporarily nearby. Then, after topping up the water we set off. A short stop in Droitwich for shopping followed by a pleasant run down to the Severn and on to moor
