I sent off an email to Wychavon Council...congratulating them on the super moorings, congratulating them on actually having a Youth Club but mentioning that the noise was a bit over the top and perhaps a trifle anti-social.. Thankfully Saturday and Sunday nights were quite undisturbed.
And so to Pershore itself, a lovely Medieval town with the remnants of a former Abbey and extensive Regency terraces mixed in. A wide range of independent shops including traditional butchers, green grocers, bakers, hardware, cafes and pubs, quite charming.

Come Monday morning we pulled forward on to the services and did the necessary and slipped away in light rain towards Pershore lock. We had decided to push on towards Tewkesbury so with fourteen miles and three locks before us we donned wet weather gear and pressed onward.

The new front access has come into its own as our side doors both here and at Pershore would have been problematic as the bank/quayside is above gunwale height at both locations.
