We were soon in urban surroundings,
with more modern concrete angular bridges crossing the canal than the old brick curvy ones.
Soon we were approaching this warehouse type building built over the canal.
Making a wide and lightt tunnel with the sun shining through the arches.
And soon we were at Salford Junction, under Spaghetti Junction and a choice to be made. Either along the Birmingham & Fazeley to Aston and Farmer's bridge or the Birmingham & Warwick, (now Grand Union) to Garrison locks, Digbeth and Farmer's Bridge.
We chose the Birmingham & Warwick as we hadn't been along there with Tacet. It was part of our route when we did the BCN challenge on nb Collingwood in June.
Warwick bar marking the end of the canal with old stop lock and loading bay, at Bordesley junction. We made the turn towards Typhoo basin.
Which was a bit disappointing, no place to tie up for lunch and no other boating activity there.
Then it was on and up the Digbeth locks before the finale of today's cruise, Farmer's bridge flight of 13. It's been a lovely day, we've both enjoyed locking in the sun, and coming back to familiar
12 miles, 27 locks, 3 tunnels
