22-02-2012 : MOOR UP AT FRADLEY JUNCTION

If you are exploring the Trent and Mersey or Coventry Canal on your Canal Boat Holiday why not moor for a while at Fradley Junction.

Fradley Junction, close to Lichfield, is where the Trent and Mersey and the Coventry Canals meet.

This junction is said to be one of the most picturesque waterside scenes anywhere in the Midlands.

An abundance of wildlife make their home here and the birds you may spot vary from Kingfishers to Herons and Moorhens to Great Crested Grebes.

Take one of the four walks around Fradley Junction which will lead you on towpaths and through footpaths in the fields.

It is also the perfect place to make an overnight stop whilst on your Canal Boat Holiday and to visit the wonderful Swan Pub or the canalside cafe.

The shop and information centre is an ideal place to shop for your Canal Boat Holiday souvenirs.

The kids will love a visit to Fradley Pool Nature Reserve where they can discover the tree sculptures or have a go at pond dipping.

Spend a while in the bird hide where there are panoramic views over the reserve and is an ideal watching platform.

Lichfield is on three and a half miles away and is well worth a visit for its magnificent cathedral and castle.
