Betton Wood To Norbury Junction.

We had a quiet night at Betton Wood and set off before 08:00 the following morning. A quick stop in Market Drayton for supplies from Asda. We climbed the five Tyrley locks in company with other crews and a volockie which made the going easy. The water point at the top lock is very slow so we didn't bother to use it.

We carried on to moor for the night at the Anchor, but didn't go in for a beer or a t-shirt. A short cruise in the morning took us close to Norbury junction.

I have been slowly rubbing down and varnishing all the window surrounds during the summer and the last one had its first of three coats this morning. I think I deserve a pie & pint in the Junction Inn later

There are some pretty homes lockside.
