The Tontine which is now being turned into apartments, but when it was built in 1173 it was called The Stourport Inn, then The Areley Inn, it laster became the Tontine Hotel. It was known as one of the most impressive Georgian buildings in Stourport. It is still very impressive.
British Waterways Offices in the round the bend iron warehouse, which dates from 1771. It is one of the earliest purpose built warehouses in the country.
The Clock Tower on the Warehouse is rather nice. The clock does chime all through the night, so if your a light sleeper then the upper basin is not a place to moor. It has not kept me awake.
Above the lock is the tearoom I spoke about yesterday.
The lock drops you down into the basin, which is where we are moored, you can see us in the distance.
Looking from the lock you can see the restored Lichfield Street Office and restored Grade II listed houses.
There we are moored up in the basin on a moorings for an historic working boat, but not sure of its name. So as you can see a nice place to be. I have just done my second load of washing, now to get it all dry, before I strip the bed and wash the sheets. The electric card cost us £4.80 for 10 units, I have no idea how long it will last, but I am going to make the most of it.
