With thanks to Mr Roy Harper, who provided the title, I would like to share some great photographs taken as Trevor and I had a healthy but sedate country walk along the canal by Stourton Junction where the Stourbridge canal meets the Staffordshire & Worcester canal in a beautiful setting.
There is a seriously gorgeous white painted Georgian cottage down there that I wouldn’t mind finding in my Christmas stocking.
My son’s partner Anne (who has just attained her Midwifery degree after three tough years of hard work and no money) tagged along
The River Stour ambles alongside for a while then passes under the canal as it meanders over a tiny aquaduct not far from Stourton Castle.
There is still a Georgian brick bridge here close to the road bridge constructed in the 20th century.
It was lovely calm, warm, bright day and the views are wonderful over these quiet backwaters.
A perfect English summers’ day
