The Aldi in Whitchurch is very new and very close to the canal. Getting to it is trickier though. We walked from the Arm along Chemistry.

Ok thanks I was hoping it would be easier for hauling beer back.

There may be an easier way, we didn't find it. Did try the obvious bypass Bridge and if you are adventurous and don't mind a steep slope and a face full of brambles I reckon it's doable.

I see on google maps there is an Aldi opposite McDonald s , but it doesn’t show the actual building, is it easily accessed from canal, where would best place be to moor.? Cheers

I moored by bridge 32, there's a path that takes you up on to the Wrexham Road and it's less than a 5 minute walk to the Spar.Good to know about the Aldi,thanks.

Cheers, For replies,could I also ask, are those finger pontoons at lion Quays usable, as were booked in for a meal , but as I will be hanging around that area for a few days also, can they be used to wind there.

They were usable 3 or 4 yrs ago, it was a bit shallow so I don't know what they are like now, it is perfectly possible to wind a boat there as well, the next spot is just up towards Llan before the poachers pocket not that far away

When we went in October last year they were usable but very shallow. I resorted to using a pole to prod down to find the deepest one. From memory the ones on the left end (when looking from the tow path) were better

Stopped there late last year (by road) and the landward end looked very shallow but seemed to deepen quite quickly. Nose in and try it would be my advice. The middle ones looked the best.
Wasn't overly impressed with the food at lunch time.

Yeah, it's one of those places that buys the more expensive frozen food from bookers and charges substantially more than it should, style over substance
