Stourport

I got 45 quid for the old batteries at the scrap yard this morning.

We won't now be taking FL to Stourport this year because of lock maintenance closures, today we went by road instead. The Staffordshire and Worcestershire canal links with the river Severn at Stourport. The river Stour also flows through the town.

The old wharfs and basins that stored the output from the Industrial Revolutions heartland via the canal are now mostly redeveloped .......quite tastefully in some places.

We had lunch in the Windlass cafe followed by a stroll around the basins and river bank.
