We left Tixall Wide at 9am and had a pleasant journey to Penkridge, we passed through 4 locks, none were busy and very few boats around. The weather couldn’t make it’s mind up all day but by evening it had sorted itself out and became very pleasant.
A lovely rural 4 hours cruising and we arrived and moored up for the day at Penkridge. James embarked upon a good clean down while Doug caught up with some work.
We wandered into the town to do some shopping - Oscar again making the long walk with us! James found a first class example of his favourite type of shop. An old fashioned sweet shop! Dawn and Carol pandered to his requirements and he can only advise that anyone with a sweet tooth and passing through Penkridge should make a visit. All the old childhood sweets were there – he couldn’t catch them out!
Found at the bottom of the high street!
