On the move again after a busy festival

We left Pelsall today, but not before I'd done some more marquee dismantling, bar dismantling, fence dismantling etc. It's good to help out, but I'm now feeling quite tired. As we went past the site after winding it looked a lot emptier than yesterday, when the sunshine brought large numbers of people to the festival.

Just before the above photo we went under Pelsall Works Bridge with its cast iron arch and brick parapet.

The date is 1824.

We stopped at Brownhills for the facilities and an Aldi shop. We had lasted a whole week on one tank of water and two loo cassettes, one of which was only half full.

On the way to Aldi I took a front view of the massive miner statue on the roundabout.

When we got to Longwood Junction the moorings were full; two boaters there invited us to tie up alongside them. We had a barbecue, making the most of the marvellous weather. Tomorrow we should be the first down the Rushall locks on our way to Fazeley.
