Thursday 27 February

Brilliant sunshine and 21 locks to climb, spread over two miles and done in 3 hours 15 minutes, and we had to empty four before we could enter them.  At five locks from the top we met a boat coming the other way which ensured that the next five locks would be set in our favour.


Top lock.

We moored at the top of the flight on the 24 hour moorings and went into Wolverhampton to explore.  We’ve never been here before and we were pleasantly surprised at how many lovely buildings there are in the City centre.     We visited the art gallery too, spending over an hour admiring the various artworks on display.
