We had a very pleasant couple of days at the end of the Stourbridge Town Arm, it's a nice peaceful location and very handy for the town centre, which is just a short walk away and has all the usual high street shops as well as a Tesco Extra.
Yesterday we set sail and headed off down the four Stourton Locks, all against us again with the bottom gates open, would have been great if we were going the other way. Never mind I needed the exercise, I had a cake baking as we went.

|Left to Stourport and right to Stafford|
At the junction we turned right onto the Staffordshire and Worcestershire canal heading north and stopped a short way up at Prestwood.

|Nice and rural, the only sound is the birds|
