Time to move on, the cupboards need restocking so we were Tamworth bound,
leaving our mooring on a glorious morning.
The 1st day of Autumn & the leaves are definitely on the turn
Looking back at the M42, we have driven over it many times,
it's nice to be cruising under it this time.
The Glascote locks were busy, no water wasted as it was one up one down.
The aqueduct over the River Tame
& a pillbox left over from the 2nd world war, just in case the enemy tried to invade by canal.
Onto the Birmingham & Fazeley canal at Fazeley Junction, it's left under Watling Street Bridge for Birmingham but we're heading north west.
We stopped just before Sutton Road Bridge as planned & once moored walked up to the Ventura Retail Park & did a biggish shop at Asda. Tomorrow we shall nip back up to the shops for a paper & try to get Mark some new footwear, he hates shopping so I expect a long face. Then onwards to see if we can find a nice quiet spot for the rest of the weekend.
