That's as far as we went...

We turned right at Fradley Junction and joined the T&M heading towards Burton. There were volunteer lockies assisting our downward passage which was helpful. We went on to Alrewas and stopped before the lock by the A513 road bridge.
We walked into the village and found the shops (closed as it was Sunday evening). We visited the church and walked along the canal to see the Trent meeting and leaving the canal. The Trent was flowing quite well and those coming upstream were having to work hard.

We were being watched
 Then we dropped down through Alrewas lock and turned round in the winding hole and back up through the lock again. We headed back towards Fradley Junction

Not much headroom here!
Then we stopped at Fradley and had a good look round. It was a nice day so we had an ice cream (this is quite rare for us). Then we turned south, back on to the Coventry Canal.
