A short paean to the Staffs.&Worcs.

What a lovely canal the Staffs.&Worcs. is, everything seems to be smaller than on other canals.

Even the tunnels at Cookley, 65 yards, and

Dunsley, 25 yards, are tiny.
At times you are so hemmed in by rock cuttings

and woodlands

that it is almost claustrophobic.

But then you meet the grand engineering of the Bratch.
Overall it's a smashing little canal, we love it.
Tomorrow we're aiming to be on the Shroppie.

Watch this space.............
