AUGUST 13TH 2012 Slow cruise to Handsacre

A slow start today; leaving Branston around 09:30 we made steady progress although the weather was not great – no rain but overcast and breezy. The river section before Alrewas was a lot calmer than our last trip when it was just coming out of flood. Fradley junction was busy and we stopped on the services to top up with water and empty the loo tank. There were three lockies on duty at Fradley which helped to speed us through. The rain shower came eventually but it was short and sharp so not too uncomfortable. We have moored near the Plumb Pudding pub at Handsacre. The evening was very pleasant with warm sunshine and Norwyn had some success roach fishing.

The marker board on the lock was only just out of the red the last time we were here
