Moored narrowboat near Gailey, Staffordshire
This is the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal north-east of Gailey Lock, looking towards Penkridge, Stafford and Great Haywood. It looks like a nice quiet place to moor overnight, but wait ... the M6 is close by off to the right.

Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal
The Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal was opened in 1772, engineered by James Brindley. It cost a little over 100,000 at the time. It links 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.
