We left the Museum moorings yesterday and went up to Tipton through the 3 Factory Locks on the 'new' main line. We had to queue behind another boat going down (outrageous) and another boat was waiting to come up - oh look it's our mates (Rupert & Dylan on NB Jacala), so they didn't bother with the locks, but winded and followed us. Shortly after we passed Brian & Ghost on NB Kyle venturing in the opposite direction.
We turned right off the main line down the Netherton Tunnel Branch and, once clear of the tunnel I walked the 3 dogs down to the very low and very narrow Gosty Hill Tunnel, heading down to the terminus of Dudley no. 2 Canal at Hawne Basin. There were, however, no visitor moorings and it was nearly dark, so we were forced to moor by the road on the inbdustrial estate. Oh well.
