Fuel boats deliver diesel, coal and wood along the canals of Britain. I know of five fuel boats which cover the Shropshire Union Canal. Look out for them on the canal passing Brewood, and if you need fuel while you’re cruising the Shroppie, check their social media channels for their timetables or text to be alerted when they are coming your way.
