Additional Information

Toilet and elsan facilities are in the sanitary station overlooking Salterhebble Basin, next to the car park area. The bin store is also in the car park. Water points can be found at the entrance to the Halifax Arm, next to the top lock, and in the small basin, between the top and lower lock.

Car parking is on a first come, first served basis so spaces for moorers cannot be reserved or guaranteed.

From the car park, the moorings are approx 400 metres along an access path, past the top lock, leading to the towpath running alongside moored boats. Further access is from Huddersfield Road.

IMPORTANT NOTES: All customer items must be stored on boats.

Although there is little movement in the water space along the arm, customers are advised to provide their own fenders.
