Last week Judith and I were back in the UK visiting our respective families. While in the Midlands, we had a few hours to spare, so we decided to take a walk along the canal near Great Haywood Junction. Though I should really say canals, as that’s where the Trent and Mersey canal meets the Staffordshire and Worcestershire canal. It’s like a T junction – see first pic showing a map of the area.
As you will see, it was a pretty grey day, but there’s always something interesting to photograph – not least, in this instance, Shugborough Hall and the fascinating design of Essex Bridge. Twice I had to step to one side into one of the V shapes ‘laybys’ – once for a jogger and the second time for 3 ladies on horseback. It was clearly a popular route. 🙂
