Unfortunately, this guide was last published in 2004. Many of the places relating to the maps are no longer there. We walked a mile into Cheswardene expecting a butcher, baker, stores and 2 pubs but all that's left is a community shop which is only open for few hours each day - not open when we got there. Both pubs were shut. At Gnosall, the guide says there is bakery, off licence and shows somewhere for take-away food (think it used to be a fish and chip shop) - these have all gone too. Unreliable when your boat hire company says "just bring a day's provisions - there are plenty of shops along the way". Very poor.
