Aqueducts (8) : Scarfields Dingle Aqueduct

A curious little aqueduct near Alvechurch which apparently allows a footpath to go underneath the canal.

Stratford-upon-Avon River Festival 2013

Something i enjoyed last year was the Stratford-upon-Avon River Festival, being a fan of boats and inland waterways it was like heaven for me! However i enjoyed it by accident to be honest, i went to Stratford last year not even knowing it was on... This year however i have been waiting for it to take place and on a scorching hot Saturday i visited the festival again, not for that long because of other commitments unfortunately but i did take quite a few photographs.

Its always nice to go somewhere new, and today i visited Alvechurch in Worcestershire (and of course the stretch of the Worcester & Birmingham Canal that runs there). Its a very interesting stretch i walked, bookended by a tunnel and a disused canal arm. In between is the lovely Alvechurch Marina and there is also an interesting little aqueduct too. You can see my photos here.
