After yesterday's exertions on the Rushall and Tame Valley Canals today was a lot easier. We still had 11 locks to do, though, down the Curdworth flight. I lockwheeled almost the whole flight, assisting Helen on her boat as well as Jubilee.

The weather stayed gloriously summery.

Moving on I snapped this peaceful scene with Tryst (I think) and the old conveyor bridge (Gravel Pit Bridge).
