Yes, another lock-free day.
The Wyrlie & Essington Canal is called the Curly Wyrely for good reason. The cruise today from Wolverhampton to Pelsal took us six hours. This cruise is designed to introduce boaters to the less popular canals of Birmingham.
This is one of the most popular canals in Birmingham - the main line from Birmingham to Wolverhampton.
The Curley Wyrley is so rarely used that we are unlikely to see another boat during the two days we spend on the canal.
Even the locals asked us why.
