Tuesday 25 February


Before leaving Wheaton Aston this morning, and working the lock there,  we filled up with water.   After that we travelled through more of the woodland cuttings that Telford created when he carved out this canal.   The cast iron Stretton Aquaduct took us over the A5 and towards Brewood where we moored for lunch before continuing on under the balustraded Avenue Bridge which leads  to Chillington Hall and out into open countryside where we moored for the night, where we can just make out the sound of traffic from the M54 motorway.
