Well, it looks as though most of the canals around Alvechurch are closed at various places due to planned and unplanned maintenance. We were hoping to cruise the Grand Union but the Stratford is closed just North of Lapworth Junction, so we thought Birmingham and we'll cruise some backwaters we've not been before. Think again, the Worcester and Birmingham is closed at Selly Oak for a new road and aqueduct. Only one route left, the W and B to Worcester - Tardebigge again - and again on the way back. Oh! well, its all good excercise and we really need excercise.
The stoppage at Selly Oak has been lifted.
