Sitting here doing the planning for our next trip which starts early August has been pretty straightforward. We will be going from Droitwich Spa Marina to Lapworth, then onto the Grand Union to join the South Oxford (new to us) down to the Thames (Oxford to Reading is also new water to us). Along the Thames to Brentford (with a diversion down the Wey and back) before re-joining the GU to head for home. All dates seem to work (we have two events that are fixed, one of which we need to come home for) and we have a rough idea of where we want to stop.
That all works until we get to Kingswood Junction, Lapworth. The route from here to Cambrian Wharf is completely new to us with what looks like a lot of built up areas around Solihull. I know a lot of you will have travelled this way, so any advice on things to look out for and, in particular, safe moorings would be very much appreciated.
Any other hints and tips for the South Oxford and Thames would also be appreciated.
We have been having a good time at home with more fun things to come before we are able to break free and run away again!
Safe travels to you all. Thank you in advance.
