Saturday afternoon: Norbury Junction
Collect the boats from the boat yard and set off north.
Saturday night: High Offley
No pictures yet. We have only been to the pub once and it was evening.
The pub is miles from anywhere and takes a bit of good navigation down roads
about a car and a half wide to find it, although it is right at the canal side.
Two small cosy bars, beer brought up in a plastic jug from the barrels in the cellar,
beer tasted good. Landlady very friendly towards folk / Morris groups.
Sunday Midday: Market Drayton
Since the trip has been re-ordered thanks to the boatyard we will not actually be going into the town.
Version 1 of the plan had us there on Wednesday, the market day, and it would have been busy
but there won't be much to do there on a Sunday.
Sunday night: Audlem
No pictures yet
Monday night: Wheelock
Tuesday night: North end of Harecastle Tunnel
Wednesday morning: Longport
Wednesday morning: Etruria
Wednesday night: Salt
Thursday night: Brewood
No pictures yet. Note that the name is pronounced as if it were spelt "brood".
Friday night: High Offley again
Still no pictures. We are actually going to go past the boatyard, turn round after a few
miles then stop at the same pub again. That way we are close to the boatyard and are at
a good pub again.
Saturday night: Home in Southampton
