Stanley Ferry is a popular mooring site located on the Aire & Calder Navigation in West Yorshire. It was here that the famous Tom Pudding tub boats were once loaded with coal before setting off in long trains along the canal to Goole. Nowadays, this semi-rural area provides a picturesque and friendly environment to moor your boat.
The linear moorings cover an area of over 900m and are split into four areas, A, B, C and D, positioned on both sides of the canal. There is currently space for up to 57 boats.
The moorings are at Stanley, three miles from Wakefield and are accessed from Ferry Lane, just off the A642.

This is a leisure site and is determined by us to be a mooring site for the storage of boats between leisure use, customers may well spend weekends on this site, and occasionally longer periods, but it is not sold as, or intended to be suitable for long term residential use. This site does not have local authority planning consent for residential use, neither does it have the level of facilities and service expected of such a mooring. As such the offer that we have is only intended to meet the needs of a leisure boater.
