I’ve bought another boat!! Not a traditional steel narrowboat this time but something very cheap and cheerful, just to bob about in at weekends and on short trips.
This is not a vlog. Consider it a bonus video that I happened to have time to compile and put up as a bit of extra footage. There’s no music, no commentary, no captions – this is all deliberate. It’s just the canal views and the “music” of the wildlife and the engine.
My journey down the Staffs & Worcester canal continues, picking up from Compton where I moored at the end of the last vlog, and heading south through Kidderminster and eventually ending up in Stourport. En route I see an unusual butty and get thoroughly whacked on the nose by another boat exiting a lock at an awkward angle.
High drama in this video as I become a sitting target for oncoming boats, stuck under a bridge when my propellor picks up something large and unpleasant. In journey terms, I come to the southern end of the Shroppie and turn right, heading south on the Staffordshire and Worcestershire canal.
