Fradley Junction

Our social this month was a Sunday morning walk along the canal at Alrewas to Fradley Junction and back. I have to confess to be a solitary walker, so it was somewhat unusal for me to join with a group of people to walk along the canal at Fradley Junction. It was my first visit to somewhere which is apparently a popular tourist attraction. As we meandered up the canal towpath we encountered a nesting swan which may have been one of the reasons we failed to complete the six mile walk as we dallied taking photos; but it may also have been that this stretch of canal is a hive of activity with one of the most picturesque waterside scenes in the Midlands, not only can you see boats passing through this busy canal junction, but you can take the scenic route around the nature reserve to find a hidden bird hide. We also lingered for refreshments at Fradley Junction before retracing our steps to Alrewas for lunch at the Crown.

As usual, I went armed with camera and returned home with numerous photos, a selection of which are included in the slideshow below:
