A pleasant village, probably the most southerly point on the Trent and Mersey.
Good moorings in the village, and also just beyond the lock heading towards Fradley.
Shops are about 5-10 minutes walk from the canal. They include a good butcher (Coates) and a co-op opr similar. Thgere is a (part-time?) post office [@@check].
Water point: a short distance above the lock onto the river section.
