Towcester & Bideford

These boats are operated by Richard and Jules, and trade under the “Jules Fuels” banner. They are based at Stoke Bruerne on the Grand Union Canal, and cover the Grand Union Canal from Stockton through Leighton Buzzard and Marsworth to Apsley, together with the North Oxford Canal from Braunston to Hillmorton.

They regularly come up to Awbridge to load solid fuel from our yard, and often arrive with Southern Cross and Stanton to load up too. 

Towcester first appeared at Awbridge in 2007 to load coal on behalf of Mike Partridge. Jules and Richard enjoyed the experience so much that they subsequently purchased the business from Mike and have been regular visitors to Awbridge ever since.

They have their own website - click here to access it.
