IF you have been down the Trans Pennine Trail (TPT) through Lymm recently, you may have noticed a new addition.

And that is The Pennine Coffee Company located by the rangers hut car park off Statham Avenue.

It is owned by Morgan Taylor, who has been born and bred in Lymm and now serves her community with hot drinks, breakfast and cakes.

She said: “From day one, everyone’s been saying how amazing it is, how grateful they are that there is something on the trail and they don’t know why nobody’s put something on here before.

“There are people that come every day just to have a coffee and bring their dog. When you’re walking the dog, it’s not as easy as tying the dog outside and going into a café.

“Sometimes, if you want to get something on the go and you don’t want to leave the dog, there aren’t many places where you can do that.”

After Morgan’s parents visited Bakewell, they found a very similar path to the TPT there where they kept coming across lots of mobile food and coffee vans.

Morgan – a former Lymm High School and Sixth Form student – added: “They were talking to me about it and I thought ‘it would be good to have something like that on the TPT near me in Lymm.

“I saw the car park and thought if anyone had put something on here so I thought I might as well try it."

Morgan originally borrowed a family friends van in July to use over the summer period before taking a break while she invested money into a new van to bring food to the table.

The 21-year-old said: “With the building site over the road I have had a lot of workers as well as people and pedestrians.

“I thought in the new van I will definitely be missing a trick if I don’t start doing breakfast and sandwiches as well as coffee so I wanted to get a bigger van.

“We got tables and chairs and it has kept flying.”

While she was off awaiting the new van, she had people emailing her, texting her and even two police officers who visit the van came to the house to ask where ‘the coffee lady’ has been.

Since she has been back, she has continued the momentum. The van also offers free dog treats and she will be opening on Christmas day too for regulars that want to continue their routine or those who don’t have anyone.

And for Morgan, an Oughtrington Community Primary School pupil, she is ever so pleased to welcome customers that are new and old faces where she grew up.

“It’s lovely to come full circle. I know many people my age talk about moving away but I have always been a bit of a home bird,” she said.

“I just like it in Lymm. It’s voted one of the nicest villages to live in and sometimes you take it for granted.

“The fact I can live five minutes away, work here and then hopefully buy somewhere around here, it’s just how I imagined my life to go in my home village.

“It feels like one big community family.”
