April 6th 2012 Onto Rugeley

There was a sharp frost overnight and the grass was white, but the sun was shinning first thing as we left our moorings at Alrewas. The first lock was not far and we were soon through and making our way to Fradley Junction. We made good progress through the first three locks but joined a queue at locks number four and five.  Once we were through the five locks we had a clear run and stopped to say a quick hello to Bob and Adele who were working on their boat at woods end lock.  We arrived in Rugeley around 4pm and after a cuppa we went shopping at Morrisons which is close to bridge 66.

Today  9 miles    and 8 locks
