Food shopping on the Trent & Mersey

Featured Posts

Going up the T&M between Fradley Jcn and Middlewich for the first time next week. Can anyone tell me where there is easy access to supermarkets for food shopping. 

 

Many thanks.

And Morrisons is the other side of the road. Rugeley is a great pedestrianised shopping center, banks, chemists, all kinds of shops.

A new M&S has been built opposite Stone bottom lock. 

What used to be the Co-op is now B&M bargains

 

Sainsbury is walkable from Etruria top lock as is Tesco.

 

It's a bit barren down the Cheshire locks. There is a small supermarket across from the pub in Rode Heath. 

The canal circumvents Sandbach.

Tesco express, Lidl and Morrisons available in Middlewich

And a good little supermarket in Great Haywood village as well, and another one canalside at Barlaston.

There's a canalside farm shop at Great Haywood. Pricey, but good quality.

 

Has a new bakery as well now.

Not sure I would describe it like that.

True, but there's a bus from Wheelock Wharf, or it's about a mile and a half on foot.

And another. North end of Harecastle Tunnel, near Hardings Wood Junction with the Macc. A big Tesco's on Liverpool Road.

There's an Aldi at Tunstall not far north of Westport Lake or just a bit south of Harecastle too.

I can see how access to supermarkets could change his girth, but how it could change the circumstances of his birth eludes me.

By the way that was a lovely selfie of you and Kathie departing Stowe Hill.

The big Tesco in Middlewich is now rebranded as Jack's.

In Stone, as well as the large M&S Foodstore next to Star Lock there is a Morrsions in the town just off the pedestrianised high street. There's a varied selection of other shops too.

Just carry on beyond Middlewich and do the Huddersfield Narrow, or the Rochdale. Fewer supermarkets and he'll work off the weight he's put on.

I don't think anyone's mentioned Aldi at Rugeley, close to bridge 67 next to the church.  Moorings either side of the bridge.

Do the Huddersfield Narrow route and you pass directly below the Asda in Ashton. How much closer to a supermarket can you get?

And Moor in the car park at Tesco in Stalybridge

Rats! I completely forgot about those two. I've even moored opposite the Stalybridge Tesco too. Wonder if Asda can lower your shopping directly in to your boat if you opt for delivery?

And a Co-op at the top end of the high street.
