Each mooring has its own letter box and key. A key is also required for access to the shower, toilet and elsan areas.

The site can be accessed from several points, either from the car park, from the top of the moorings near to the sanitary station or from the towpath at the opposite side of the site. The majority of access paths around the site are either stone flagged or cobbled. Some access points are locked with the same key that provides access to the service block.

The moorings are partially fenced from the surrounding areas, although not secure.


All customer items must be stored on boats and not on the surrounding land areas. The cultivation of surrounding land areas is not permitted.

Council Tax is applicable for residential moorings, and is not included in the mooring fees. Where council tax is applicable, refuse collection should be provided by the local authority. However, the bins provided by CRT can also be used by residents.
