Additional Information

The nearest water point is on the towpath side of the Kings Road site, less than 5 minutes cruise away.

Car Parking - an open car park provided by the local waterway, moorers can use it but they do not have any priority over others at this site. This is in a small layby area, off the access road, at the side of the site. Further parking can be found next to the towpath side of the Kings Road site, west of bridge 5.

The access road running past the site can be used for loading and unloading only. All vehicles must be parked in the appropriate areas afterwards.

Facilities block and / or waste bins are provided by and under the control of the local waterway, they do not form part of the mooring agreement

A large grassed area is at the site and is for the use of all CRT customers.

There are various access points to the site, including the layby and from the grassed area, some of which have steps.

All customer items must be stored on boats and not on any of the surrounding land areas. The land areas must not be cultivated in any way.

Although there is little movement in the water space at this site, customers are advised to provide their own fenders as there is no rubbing strip present in this location.

Mooring rings are shared to best manage the water space at this site.

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.
