We decided to leave it until today (Monday) before moving on Rugeley, there is now only one more overnight stop between here and the marina at Fazeley so we’ll move on whenever we feel like it. It was still chilly today with an early fog as we set off but that eventually cleared and,as we moored for lunch here in Rugeley, the rain has set in. Surprisingly few boats on the move today, although it did get busy on the sanitary station whilst we were filling/emptying with 5 boats queued to use the services.
Where we are moored now is the section of canal (Brindley Bank) where the murder victim, Christine Collins, was found in 1839 having been killed by a canal boat crew who were later hung for their crime.
