Spring Summer Cruse 2015 ❷❹

The Burf (Hamstall Inn) to  York Street Lock

Date 23 Jun 2015

Overnight the weather was mild and overcast.

Morning: A late start after a leisurely breakfast soon had us at Lincomb Lock. A steady chug along the river before turning off onto the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal. A few boats were coming down the two staircase locks.

Afternoon: We stopped for lunch at York Street Visitor Moorings.  It was so good, we decided to stay on the 5 day moorings for a few days. Shopping was high on the agenda.  I discovered a sheared bolt on the altenator bracket and when I investigated further it seemed that four bolts had worked loose at some point in time.  We managed to get three of the broken bolts extracted and replaced. leaving a further small stud to be extracted later.

Evening: We went for a meal to the Black Star in Stourport but with the waiting time being over an hour we abandoned the pub and went to an Indian the 'Namaste' for a meal instead. It proved to be a good choice.
