|Approaching Whittington Lock|
At the next lock we were briefly tempted by a coffee shop in the garden centre next door to the canal but moved on when we saw how busy it was. Across the valley we could see the village of Wolverley and the church looked particularly attractive. The sunny start we had had to the day was disappearing though under a layer of cloud, which was a great shame.
Not long past here and we were back to our boat. It was a good little work out for the morning - although we only walked a modest length (6 miles) we did enough to suggest tht this canal might be worthy of further exploration. I'll wager it will be by foot rather than boat as it is a lot quicker!
