Company Info

Talbot Wharf is a traditional, family run wharf boatyard on the Shropshire Union Canal. We've been selling chandlery and boating equipment since 1962, and over years we've expanded into outdoor leisure and camping products too.

Our customers love to get out into the countryside and we love to hear first hand about how you use the kit we sell. We pride ourselves on responding to waht you need, so if there's something you want us to stock, let us know.

Make it a day out and visit our shop in Market Drayton, then walk along the canal or visit the town. Or explore the rest of our site to shop online.
