Two timelapse films for you today to finish off the fascinating trip we made from Windmill End on the Dudley No. 1 Canal to Birmingham. The first one is only nine seconds long - I don't know why - but does include Telford's Galton Bridge and the Galton Tunnel.
The last part of day nine of our April 2011 cruise is recorded in the following 1'08" timelapse film which takes us under the amazing Engine Arm Aqueduct and on to central Birmingham, just past Gas Street Basin and Worcester Bar. We tied up in front of The Mailbox, just before the right turn to Holliday Wharf.
And another - I am pleased to hear that my favourite drunk has sold her fat boat and pissed off to Spain Hip hip horray!! Someone else the waterways didn’t need.
