A narrowboat on its way towards Wombourne is leaving the lock while Grandma looks on, no doubt anticipating her tasty lunch in The Green Man (recommended) a short while later.

The Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal was opened in 1772, engineered by James Brindley. It joins the River Severn at Stourport to the Trent and Mersey Canal at Great Haywood Junction in Staffordshire. There are 43 locks (45 if you don't fancy the deep wide locks at Stourport) and the canal is 46 miles in length.
