This was our last big trip on our Narrowboat, Thornebird. We travelled around the Midlands narrow canal network, starting with the Stratford-on-Avon canal, then on the Grand Union into Birmingham, through the Birmingham Canal Navigations to Dudley, Wolverhampton and Walsall, returning along the Birmingham & Fazeley, Coventry and northern reaches of the Oxford Canals. We parted with Thornebird the following summer.
