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.
From M42 junction 9 take the A4097 Kingsbury Road to the first traffic island. Take the first exit left into Bodymoor Heath Road. Bodymoor Heath Canal Bridge is one and a half miles along the road. The site car park is on the right immediately after the bridge.
The water supply is shared with visiting boats. The nearest elsan disposal is at Fazeley Mill Marina on the Birmingham - Fazeley Canal, which is just over three and a half mile cruise from the site.
The car park has a padlocked gate which requires a CRT key. Keys can be purchased from the onne shop: https://shop.canalrivertrust.org.uk/shop. . Refuse disposal and a wood storage area are in the car park.
There are mooring rings on some sections of the site only so mooring pins may be needed.
A selection of shops can be found in the village of Fazeley (four miles by road). There is a public house five minutes walk away, along the towpath.
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.
