As I suspected on John's visit to Alrewas he couldn't resist a walk on the towpath! Of course he had a camera with him and took some photos too. The batteries ran out - another frequent occurrence at times and the set of photos were completed on his mobile phone!

However they are good photos as you can see from this selection. At least he has seen some snow on the canals this year!

The Mill Stream at Alrewas is maintained by Alrewas Civic Society

Alrewas lock, going down this eventually leads to Burton on Trent

The weir onto the River Trent below the lock

As we always say when visiting other areas of the country are on the canal system "one day we will bring Epiphany here". This particularly applies to this area as the Trent and Mersey canal along with the Staffs and Worcs and Shroppie was part of our "boating ground" with Twelfth Night.
