Pretty West Stockwith lies at the junction of the Chesterfield Canal and the River Trent in Nottinghamshire.
The site offers a good base for those wishing to explore the tidal River Trent or to cruise along one of the earliest canals to Retford, Worksop and on to Chesterfield.
The linear moorings are approximately 230m long and provide space for up to 15 vessels moored against the off-side bank.
The site is off Stockwith Road which is off the A161. The site entrance is approximately 300 metres from Bridge 85 which crosses the Chesterfield Canal.
The site is approximately two miles east of Misterton village which has some shops and take-aways. Gainsborough, where services including a post office, banks, restaurants and pubs, is approximately seven miles to the South East.
All facilities, apart from water points and electricity along the site, are within a short walk at West Stockwith Basin. The showers, toilets and the elsan disposal are in the facilities block beside the Lock Cottage and for the use of all customers. The refuse disposal point is beside the hardstanding area. The pumpout facility is beside the slipway. A diesel point is beside the lock.
Car parking areas are also in the adjacent basin, all of which are accessed with a standard CRT key. Keys are available for £7 each from CRT or other water side outlets. Please note there is NO vehicle access on to the linear moorings.
All berths on this area of the West Stockwith site have electricity connection provided through Smart Meters.
West Stockwith Yacht Club is on the west side of the basin. There is a members' clubhouse which opens Wednesday, Friday and Saturday evenings and lunchtime on Sundays.
All items must be stored on the boat and not the surrounding land areas.
Mooring rings are shared with neighbouring boats to best manage the water space.
There is a slipway in the basin managed by a third party.
Access via manned structure
The site can be viewed at any time from the towpath. Whilst at the site, please respect the privacy of other moorers.
