Additional Information

Access to the site is through a locked 5-bar gate, which is located at the end of the access track. A visitor car park is available next to Bathpool swing-bridge.

Toilet, shower and Elsan facilities are in the sanitary station block, to the right-hand side of the access gate to the site. There is a Biffa bin located to the side of the CSF block. These facilities are not a dedicated facility for the Bathpool mooring customers, as they are open for use by passing boats, as well as other canal users.

There is lighting for external illumination around the facilities block.

Additional facilities can be found at Maunsel Canal Centre, approximately five miles east.

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.
