The BEST things about living on a Narrowboat? A Chocolate Factory by the Canal!

February 21, 2020

What's one of the BEST things about living on a narrowboat? Finding a chocolate factory by the canal! We're heading down the Worcester & Birmingham Canal on our way to the Stratford-upon-Avon Canal, but you know Colin can't resist chocolate! Leaving Birmingham we cruise in narrowboat Silver Fox alongside the railway and into Bournville, the home of the Cadbury chocolate factory. From there we head left at King's Norton Junction and onto the north of the Stratford-upon-Avon Canal. We enter Brandwood Tunnel with William Shakespeare watching down on us from the north portal, then pass through the suburbs of Birmingham including the Mediterranean looking Dicken's Heath before mooring up at Illshaw Heath for the day.
