Thwarted again

As Richard of Indigo Dream points out in a comment to the previous post, there's been a breach on the Stourbridge Canal, and it's closed between Stourton Junction and the Stourbridge flight. The photo on the BBC news website looks pretty serious, and someone on the Canal World Forum says the whole of the town arm was drained.

This is bad news, as the Stourbridge and Dudley Canals were some of the bits we particularly wanted to do, as they would have been new territory. So we've spent a good part of the evening trying to decide what to do instead.

Maybe we'll stick to the Rethink Plan, but go up the Wolverhampton 21 and visit the Black Country Living Museum, then into Birmingham and out via Farmer's Bridge and Knowle. We've also looked at reverting to part of the Original Plan, by going down the Stratford Canal and back, before going into Birmingham. It's all a bit up in the air at the moment, but at least it'll give us something to think about between now and Friday! All suggestions welcome.
