The Shropshire Union canal The last "bit"

Before I begin, just a reminder that " The Taster" is still available for you to read. A full chapter from the book 'A Time for Living'                  
                       'If you like the taster you'll love the book'

Although, in the book, Sam and Josh had not the time to stop here, The Bridge Inn at Brewood is a must for all you travellers whether by boat or car    Debbie always provides a smile and a welcome to everyone who wishes to enjoy the best in food and beers. The constant guest beers will delight your pallette and the excellent food from an extensive menu will tickle your taste buds. Don't take my word for it, try for yourself the next time you are in the area.

The last Inn on the 'Time for Living ' trip is an Inn that is very close to my heart. I have spent many hours enjoying the company, food and drink at the Junction Inn, Norbury, as I am sure many other canal lovers have. This a busy and popular rural pub. A large, comfortable bar decorated with canal prints and ceramics. Under the low beam roof is a hand painted mural of an old canal working horse. The Junction Inn has a restaurant and a well maintained beer garden where you can eat and drink of the best whilst watching the canal life. Unfortunately in the book, Josh and Sam could not enjoy the delights of the Inn as they were whisked away to prevent an assassination (theirs). I must emphasise that this is not the normal welcome at the Junction Inn.
If you haven't yet read the book, these articles will give you some idea of the journey from London by canal. The book is a romantic thriler with, I hope, a true taste of the life on the canals of England, and the many places of interest with atmosphere and style that you will never meet anywhere else in the world.
I hope you've enjoyed this series, next week will be something completely new.
