Canal Day 6: Kinver to Kidderminster

Caunsell Bridge successfully negotiated.

The impressive stretch of canal by the Austcliffe Rock.

Just after Austcliffe Rock there are several Holiday Homes with a Railway Signal - this is a stretch of the canal I have often walked but not seen from the Canal before.

Lunch at The Lock, Woverley after a busy morning. For the first time we had to queue at some locks.

Woverley Court Lock.

The split iron Bridge at Wolverly Court Lock.

St Mary & All Saints in Kidderminster ; with a tower dating back to the 15th centtury, this is the largest Parish Church in Worcestershire. My old school, King Charles I Grammer School was founded in the Church in. Founders Day Services are still held every year.

Kidderminster in Bloom: the roundabout in front of the Post Office with Baxter Church in the background.

And now for two less than attrative photographs. First, the ugliest building in Kidderminster - the tower block over the Post Office.
