Clarence Dock L1 Leisure

Historic Clarence Dock was originally used by barges to unload goods, mainly coal, from the Leeds and Liverpool Canal and Aire and Calder Navigation. Now it provides 20 serviced leisure moorings within close proximity to Leeds City Centre.

The moorings are set amongst an attractive backdrop of apartments, shops, restaurants and the Royal Armouries Museum.

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.
