|On the Staffs & Worcestershire|
Last night we had changed our plans. Previously our intention was to go to Penkridge on the Staffs and Worcs. However we had concluded that neither of us were that interested in going there. It's a useful place for shopping and one of the pubs has has very good food. And that's about it. So a mile after leaving our mooring we turned the boat around and headed back to Great Haywood. Despite occasional light showers we reached there in time for lunch. We took the opportunity to fill up with water and buy a few groceries at the farm shop. Then north up the Trent & Mersey Canal towards Stone. By 3pm we had reached one of our favourite moorings out in the countryside at Ingestre. I dont know how to pronounce it!
