Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal north of Penkridge, Staffordshire
Out of sight 180 metres to the right is the M6, with its roaring traffic noise day and night. This is not such a peaceful place for overnight mooring as it appears. The canal links the River Severn at Stourport to the Trent and Mersey Canal at Great Haywood, a distance of 46 miles. It was engineered by James Brindley, and fully opened in 1772, costing a little over 100,000.
