Leaving Norbury Jct. and passing through Grub St. Cutting the village of High Offley and the
canal side Anchor Inn are passed. The Anchor opened in 1830 and has been in the same family for a hundred years. I had a drink here some 18 months ago and the beer was served in jugs from the cellar. The inside is just 2 tiny bars each about the size of a small terraced house front room and the bar is tiny behind which is the Landlady`s lounge also if you drink to much the Loos` are outside. Click the link to read about it
.A mile further on is Shebdon Embankment and towards the end lies the old chocolate factory where chocolate crumb was loaded on to boats and taken to Cadburys at Bournville on the outskirts of Birmingham.
Moving along passing through Woodseaves Cutting and the lower picture shows the rock sides
that the canal builders cut through.

And below another of those tall grand bridges.
Just need to drop through the 5 locks at Tyrley and Market Drayton will be home for a few days.
