...and so to the top of Glascote Locks where we are on the outskirts of Tamworth. We have never stopped here before so Geoff immediately went on his reconnoitre of the town.
|He discovered Tamworth Castle|
|He discovered the huge church of St Editha's|
|Today the interior was laid with tables, including in front of the High Altar. Geoff asked if they were expecting an extra large Last Supper, onlyto be told that over the next four days they would be hosting over 1000 local primary school children. |
A pleasant enough mooring just before the top of Glascote locks but not sure about the pub which is a short distance away. However when we moored up just before lunch when some people on two small cruisers moored in front of us, came back to their boats the smell indicated that they had collected Fish & Chips.......the smell was too tempting but we resisted until this evening. A very short walk brought be to a good Fish & Chippie, very clean and with a very cheerful lady serving me..... the fish was excellent.......
