Additional Information

The water point is for the use of berth holders only. The car park is for the use of all customers. Mooring cleats may be shared with the neighbouring boat to best manage the water space.

Access to the moorings is along a dirt pathway from the car park, through a secured gated and down flagged steps onto a rise and fall pontoon fitted with a strip of anti-slip. The gate requires a standard CRT key available from the Fearns Wharf office, and selected waterside outlets, at a cost of £7 per key.

All customer items must be stored upon the boat and not the pontoon.

A by-wash and storm drain enter into the basin opposite the mooring site.
