Additional Information

Facilities, excluding water point and electricity bollards, are for the use of all boaters. Electricity is provided by Smart Meters where electricity is purchased via an online account. Further details available on request.

A small sanitary station, housing the toilet, wash basin and elsan, is next the car park, approx 50 metres from the gatehouse entrance. A small refuse disposal area is next to the sanitary station.

Access to the site is through a small gatehouse and requires a key available to berth holders only. Keys can be purchased from the Moorings Manager for a refundable deposit of 15 pounds each. Refunds will be given when the key is returned with a valid receipt. There is another door between the gatehouse and mooring area which is operable with the same key.

Customers are currently permitted to store small items, such as ropes and fenders, within the gatehouse. However, the storage of gas, coal, paint and other flammable items is strictly forbidden. All other customer items must be stored on boats and not on the pontoons or walkways.

Due to works being carried out by Calderdale Council, the car park near to the sanitary station is currently unavailable for vehicle use by mooring customers. An alternative access point and car parking area has been created and details are available from the mooring manager.
