Yesterday (Saturday, 1st September 2012) was a nice day, particularly in the late afternoon. I’ve just got a copy of Final Cut for editing videos, and was keen to have a play, so I thought I’d turn out another ride video for Trev in Australia and maybe for a few other Brownhills/Walsall Wood exiles and expats, now resident in other corners of the world.
In this one, I’m coming from Chasewater along the canal, and the journey picks up on the towpath near Catshill, heads past The Anchor on the cut, over Cathshill Junction, Clayhanger Bridge, leaving the canal at The Black Cock Bridge. From here, I nip down Hall Lane, loop through Walsall Wood High Street, hang a right up Brookland Road and over to the old area of Holly Bank. Travelling full length of Holly Lane, including the alley where the lane used to join Lichfield Road. From there, over Shire Oak Hill and down into Brownhills.
In order to make it a bit more parable, sections are at normal speed and 3.5x speed. The soundtrack is ‘Tuesday Afternoon’ – to me, possible the Moody Blues finest moment.
My apologies for the rough edits. I’ll get better at it I guess, but Final Cut a huge program to get used to…
