Gloucester – Warehouses – Waterways – Adventure

Gloucester was a surprise. I’d briefly stopped overnight on my ancestry journey. As my mind was on visiting specific towns I had no knowledge or wanted to of this town. I did know it was not near the ocean – my Tom Tom showed me!  haha Yet there were many seagulls flying around – I had little head space to figure out why.

The next morning I was off again being directed by my trusty Tom Tom. I saw a sign Maritime Museum!  Of course I turned that steering wheel its direction and this is what I found to my surprise.

Moral: Listen to the little signs and just go explore. I could have missed this little gem.

PS  It is 16 miles from the coast with a waterway to the ocean – it is also a gateway to many of the canals in South of England. In its day it was a rather important town for goods arriving from the ocean to feed the inland towns via the canal system.
