Left the car, and cycled a short way up Bishopton Lane to get on the canal. The towpath here is very good, hard tarmac surface well finished off. A runner joined at the same time as me and he was about 40 yards ahead. He was going really well and I was struggling, with the first few locks to keep up with him. Saw this quaint little bridge and by the time I had taken the picture the runner was out of sight. Never saw him again.
The Wharf, Wilmcote.
Another very quaint bridge giving access to a farm. Interesting that when these were built, they only had room for one barge to pass through at a time.
Heading back into Stratford, I was struck by the contrast of the yellow and orange cranes and the blue sky. Unfrotunately, this does not do it justice. I found out later that the premises are ADG Equipment in Bloxham Road.
A good trip out today, about 9 miles. On the chilly side but the sun made up for that. Certainly will return to do this one when the weather makes it better conditions.
