Seen from Tavern Bridge.
Turner's Garage at the edge of Wheaton Aston is a thriving rural service garage, with a side access from the Shropshire Union Canal. It has long been renowned for selling diesel fuel to boat crews at the lowest price available on the waterways in this region. This wharf has been lengthened and upgraded recently. Formerly there was barely room for more than one boat, and queues for fuel could be considerable.
