Bodymoor Heath L1

Water Park Moorings are located in an idyllic rural location on the Birmingham & Fazeley Canal to the west of Kingsbury in north Warwickshire.

The site gets its name from the nearby Kingsbury Water Park, which is a popular breeding ground for birds as well as offering a range of outdoor family friendly activities.

The linear moorings stretch over a distance of 340m and currently provide space for up to 23 vessels moored against the off-side bank.
