Penkridge to Gailey Round House and the summit level

 Wednesday June 16 Penkridge market and on to Gailey (3 mile, 6 locks)

Another bright sunny day saw us have a cup of tea before walking to the large market here, which is on every Wednesday and Saturday. We found the new one way system worked well. We bought a few bits including a bright shirt for John. 

The old White Hart pub is a lovely building, opposite the farmers shop and market.

We can recommend the Cappuccino coffee and full English breakfast at Kaffeine, near the Star Inn, just off the old market square. Good quality fair.


We set off up the six locks, past Otherton Boat Haven 

to the top lock, Gailey Lock. 

Below is a different view of it!

 a favourite shop and stopover at Gailey Roundhouse, only to find it closed! Is it really closed? It looked to be 😭 😭

We found a shady mooring to rest up for the day.
