Canal Day 2: Worcester to Stourport

The Marina at Worcester.

Day 2 began with the discovery that the pound between the two locks you need to go through to enter the Severn, had been emptied over night by vandals.

Paddles up and water entering the pound

Finally in the wide lock at Worcester

Worcester Cathedral from the River Severn

The bridge at Holt Heath

Lunch stop at the Hampstall Inn on the river.

Moored up waiting for the lock keeper to open the gates

We were expecting a boat and were greeted by several canoes

The bridge at Stourport - we left the river just before the bridge.

Walking the plank - somewhere betwen Stourport and Kidderminster
