Here I am  Rune
Distance  25.5 miles 
Total 3138 Locks  165 Tunnels
Running total mileage 4677.3 miles

Well that was a fair day’s work, I don’t think we have travelled as far in one day just on canals. After an 8am start we travelled the full length of the Wyrley and Essington canal from Anglesey basin to Horsley Fields junction including the Cannock extension and then carried on down to Tipton where we have now moored for the night. The total distance being 25.6 miles and taking us 10 hours and 3 minutes (including 20 minutes down the weed hatch trying to untangle a load of fishing line due to a fisherman being asleep as we passed him and snagging his line.

The current plan for tomorrow will involve 12 locks and about 4 miles of canal. The final flight up to Titford pumping station could be a bit challenging since about 50 boats are supposed to be trying to go the same way!
