Q & A


We're shortly travelling up the north Stratford, then on the Worc & Birmingham and BCN to Wolverhampton/Autherley Junction. Then we'll go right on the Staffs and Worcs to Great Haywood junction. We'll need to stop at least once overnight in the Birmingham area,including the BCN old line. Any suggestions? MIKE

I've no recent experience but used to moor at Sherborne Wharf http://www.sherbornewharf.co.uk/moorings.htm "5 minutes from the International Convention Centre, National Indoor Area, National Sealife Centre, Broad Street and Brindleyplace. Tesco supermarket only five minutes walk away. Birmingham New Street Station and city centre only ten minutes away." A quiet mooring on one of the loops created when Telford's straight main line cut through the old winding contour route.

we have moored in and around the birmingham network of and on for the last 20 years and had no problems so for us any where is a good mooring

Gas Street Basin is good, as is the Black Country Museum. Moored up at both without any problems.

Many thanks for the advice. We stayed at Sherborne wharf, squeezed in between 2 other boats - will book in advance next time.
Only problem - getting our dog off the very back and finding grass for his toilet!
We did have a problem with youths 1/2 way down the Wolverhampton flight though.
