A bit of a glitch when Sue realised I had left the cassette behind at Tyrley's elsan point. I held FL to the bank while Sue trudged back down a soggy towpath to collect the vessel... not the best start to a cosy put your feet up birthday cruise that I had in mind for her. Half hour later we are on our way again, it's grey and overcast without wind or rain as we continued through Woodseaves atmospheric narrow cutting, parts of which were dug by hand out of solid rock, trees cling precariously to the steep cliff like walls, two high bridges appear to be holding the cliffs apart.
We moored at Goldstone just after the cutting opposite the Wharf Inn a cruise of a mile and a half. I can recommend the pub good ale good food and large portions to boot.
