Leaving Birmingham.

We finally moved on from our comfort spot in Birmingham. And as predicted  we did it in the wind and the rain.  Farmers Locks – they run between and under the buildings heading out of Birmingham, the wind hits the walls, blows down roads and generally makes life miserable. Ditto the rain. Thankfully my oversized waterproof jacket kept me dry, and the ski jacket underneath it kept me warm. They are spending a lot of money in Birmingham at the moment. It’s going to be a good place to be in the future.

Looking back.  You can just see the top of the NIA building, it wont look like that next time, it is in the middle of being renovated.

Still looking back, - the BT Tower in the distance.

More carving on the lock gates, it's a new thing.   The purists aren't happy but I like it.

Going under the buildings.  Note the miserable weather.
