About us

We are John and Jenny Jackson and we deliver coal and smokeless fuels along the canals of England using our narrowboat, “Roach". We are approved coal merchants and offer both wholesale and retail services on our extensive range of solid fuels. 

We also offer deliveries by road throughout the Midlands and the North West.

We are particularly keen on offering very good “summer discounts” to customers who wish to stock up in the summer months. Please feel free to ring and ask for prices.

We established our business in 1994, and have been trading continuously ever since. 

If you wish to contact us, or to order coal then telephone
