Barton Turn to Alrewas

We set off at 9am as didn’t sleep very well due to the proximity of the A38. Never mind, if we hadn’t stopped when we did we would have been caught in a really freaky wind and rain storm. Again weather was raining whilst travelling so we had geared up in wet weather clothing in anticipation. This journey is the furthest we have travelled so far in Breakaway. Wychnor lock was the first we went through.

Wychnor church.

Next was getting past the weir before Alrewas, where the River Trent merges briefly with the canal. We then negotiated the bends in the canal to Alrewas lock. We decided to moor in the 14day moorings just past bridge 47 so we can explore at leisure (providing our batteries hold out). We had a little walk along the towpath between the showers and bridge 48 was sporting this fine graffiti.
