Timelapse: Stockton to Wigram's Turn

And here we are, at the end of our excellent two week cruise on Shadow in April 2011. This is the last timelapse film from that journey, which took in all or part of the following canals:

Birmingham and Fazeley
Tame Valley
Ocker Hill Tunnel Branch
Walsall Town Arm
Wyrley and Essington
Staffs and Worcs
Stourbridge Town Arm
Fens Branch
Stourbridge Extension
Dudley No. 1
Dudley No.2
Boshboil Branch
Bumblehole Branch
Netherton Tunnel Branch
Gower Branch
Wolverhampton Level
Worcester and Birmingham
Lapworth Link
Grand Union

When planning the cruise I calculated that we would do 195 miles and 272 locks. But we stopped 3.5 miles and 16 locks short of Stratford-upon-Avon, which reduces the totals to 188 miles and 240 locks. I did all the planning with Nicholson's Guides counting locks and mile markers, so I'll have to check this against CanalPlanAC.

Thanks for sharing your holiday with us. I've really enjoyed it, I just wish double locks where that quick to operate in real life!! LOL
