Adderley to Market Drayton

Tuesday 24th November

We made an early start and straight into the five Adderley locks, these locks also leak quite badly so they were all empty which was great for us and we made good time to the top. 

Once the locks were done James went inside to prepare more pens for turning, we're on quite a tight schedule to get into Birmingham to join the RCTA (Roving Canal Traders Association) Christmas Floating Market and get the stock levels up so we have to make the most of the available day light hours. We stopped at Market Drayton and James set up his workshop and I wandered into town. 

This kingfisher actually stayed still whilst we drifted by, they normally fly off before I get the camera ready

Moored in Market Drayton
