Tipton to Bentley Bridge

Last Tuesday we left Tipton and after a brief stop to drop off Anne's pens we continued on through Coseley Tunnel and followed the Main Line on the Wolverhampton Level to Horseley Fields Junction.

Looking back at the sign post 
We had decided to stop off at Bentley Bridge as a few people have mentioned it being a good stopping place before (or after) doing the Wolverhampton 21. So at the junction we turned right onto the Wyrley and Essington Canal and new waters for us. After about a mile we came to Wednesfield Junction and the site of the Bentley Canal, there is just a short section remaining it provides three moorings at the Bentley Bridge Retail Park. 

Nice sunny morning

So there we were next to the Fayre and Square and opposite the massive Cineworld as well as a view of KFC and McDonalds. 

We had a stroll round the shops, stocking up at Aldi for us and Just4Pets for Dudley, and a visit to Hobbycraft, Home Bargains and B&M.

It's so handy for the shops as we are moored up by the car park.

6 miles

TOTAL 582 miles and 467 locks
