Saturday 15 March

We got up early and headed back to Kings Norton Junction where we turned right onto the North Stratford Canal.   Another load of washing today to take advantage of the glorious warm drying weather.

We made it as far as Hockley Heath and moored up.  It was soon evident though that this was an internet blackspot as we had no signal at all for phones or computer.  Unable to communicate with anyone outside the village we went off to explore.    We found you could buy a McLaren sports car, a swimming pool, or a Villeroy & Bosch bathroom all within four hundred yards of the canal – sadly, none of them any use to us at the moment.
