Droitwich Barge Canal Open

New moorings under construction in Droitwich earlier this year.
The Droitwich Barge Canal, linking the River Severn to the town, re-opens on Monday (20 June). Dear old "Waterscape" announced the re-opening as a "stoppage" on the Staffs & Worcester Canal as well as a "Stoppage" on the Worcester & Birmingham, neither of which have any connection with the new stretch. Despite the Barge Canal having it's own page on the stoppages section of the website it's not mentioned there at all!
There's no word on the Junction Canal, that completes the through link to the Worcester & Birmingham, but with the official opening of both routes set for 1st July it can't be far behind.
