We are Liam and Kerry, and along with Tommy the Patterdale Terrier, deliver coal, smokeless fuels, diesel and other boating consumables along the Bridgewater Canal.

We have been operating under the name of Longford Canal Services since September 2010, and since this time we’ve grown and continue to do so, to a thriving business serving the canal and canal-side properties with our goods.

Operating throughout the year, and if unable to get to you due to stoppages or being frozen in will endeavour to deliver your order by road.

We can also carry out unattended deliveries as we accept debit and credit card payments in person and over the phone. Payment by cash, cheque and BACS is also avavailable.

To find out where we are and where we’ll be over the next week or so please get in touch.
