|Cheers! First time this year, out on the deck in the sun enjoying a beer|
After a few days in Stourport we are trickling slowly back towards Stourbridge to get our damaged rudder looked at. It's been an enjoyable few days here in the only town in Britain to have been created solely because of the coming of the canals.

|Now that's what you call a mooring ring Brian|
|A boat with a difference – no windows! They're all done the other side|
The journey back has been a lot easier than the trip down. No fallen tree, no drained pounds. Just sunshine and plenty of water. And another view of the steam train high above. Tonight we are moored once more at Wolverley, a village once known as a centre of nail making.
