Home from Home

Star passes its 'birthplace' Stenson Boatbuilders beside Stenson Lock - couldn't see a blue plaque though.
Stenson is the last of the four wide locks on the T&M between Shardlow and Burton on Trent. And, boy, were we glad to see the back of them; they're heavy as hell and fill furiously. Open a paddle too fast and a Niagara of water pours out - and all over your deck if you're too close!

Yes, I am down here! At the bottom of Stenson Lock
