Today we tackled the Wolverhampton 21, taking us down to the Staffs and Worc. Canal at Aldersley Junction.
Back in June we worked this flight with an enthusiastic crew of 9 enabling us to work the 21locks in just 1 hour 22 minutes.
Today it was just the two of us, and with the locks against us, it took us 2 hours 40 mins to get to the bottom. We did meet another boat on the way up, so a couple of locks were set for us.
There was still a couple of hours daylight left so we carried on - turning onto the Shroppie and have moored in Brewood for the night. A good days cruising, tying up at 4.45pm. The days are getting longer!
