Out of Gas St. Basin onto the Worcester & Birmingham Canal through Edgbaston and pass the Univercity of Birmingham just 4 lock free miles brings us to Bournville.
Now anybody that knows me will realise there`s no chance of me passing a chocolate factory without stopping.
B.W. Have provided offside moorings that a BW key is needed for access but sadly only room for 3 boats. Must be hell in the peak months although of course there is the towpath side but this is not one of the best areas to leave your boat un-attended.
So we did the tour of Cadbury World and with the voucher collected on admission paid a visit to the factory shop. Now this factory shop is not in the visitor complex but nearer the railway stn you pass from the moorings. This is the shop that Cadbury staff use and is full of bargains, so don`t miss it.
Those that know me would be surprised if not shocked that i would pass this buiding and not stop. True Bev?
