Our Local Waterways
Canalside Farm, Shop and Café is located on the banks of the Trent and Mersey Canal, where it meets the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal, at the historic Great Haywood Junction (Britain’s busiest canal intersection!). The mighty River Trent, which winds its way north to join the Humber Estuary 185 miles away, also runs close by.
Together these waterways have played a major role in shaping the history of Staffordshire and Britain’s rise as an industrial nation. Today they offer a wonderful way to explore the beauty and tranquility of our countryside and its wildlife, a far cry from their hectic past and the stresses and strains of modern day life.
