Perry Barr

We moved to a new Travelodge at Perry Barr which is a suburb of Birmingham.  Our new room is slightly smaller than the previous one however we have managed to fit everything into it.  For some reason the name “Perry Barr” had me thinking of canals and then I remembered when tracing the canals in Google Earth whilst we were back in Australia there was a flight of locks at Perry Barr.  So off I went to explore the local area.  After initially walking in exactly the wrong direction I eventually found the canal.

Apart from the graffiti, the area looked rather clean and tidy.

I rather liked the look of this small cast iron footbridge

We head to Rugby tomorrow.
