July 5th 2012 Cadbury World

We were woken this morning at 07:30 by a gentle tap on the boat from another boat.  Some little toe rag had untied  our back mooring rope and we were half way across the cut but we were soon tied up again. After showering and breakfasting we left Birmingham and headed for Bournvillle where we moored in the secure BW moorings and headed off to visit Cadbury World. We had a great time at the world famous chocolate makers with some very welcome samples. After our visit it was back to the boat  and we soon came to Kings Norton junction where we would turn through the guillotine locks and join the Stratford on Avon canal. We made good progress with clear passage through the Brandwood tunnel. Our moorings this evening are at Earlswood. Last but not least no rain today, glorious sunshine all day.

Today 11 miles      2 tunnels
