After watering etc at the excellent facilities at Black Country Museum we set off in a NWesterly direction (I think). I was not looking forward to the Netherton Tunnel as it is over 3000yds long and it promised to be about 4o minutes.
Entering the tunnel
The route between here and Parkhead Junction was surprisingly pleasant and not at all as expected. We had expected built up and industrial but it was surprisingly rural.
Shortly after the turn we reached "The Waterfront" and Merry Hill Shopping Centre.
There is plenty of good mooring here, both opposite "The Waterfront and sitting high above the Merry Hill Shopping Complex.
