A half hour cruise from Aston lock there is a quiet mooring, we made use of it for a couple of days.

There are some nature trails around Burston, we stayed a couple of days before moving to Tixall for a day. Next morning after a quick trip to the farm shop we set off west along the Staffordshire & Worcester canal.

At Tixall I also met up briefly with a skipper who worked at Nobles Hospital while I was there, I have completely forgotten her name and wish I had my camera with me to take a picture for the blog of NB Chug and crew.
