The leisure moorings site covers approximately 615m and there is space for up to 34 vessels moored in four areas both above and below the lock.
The moorings are at the end of an access road from Low Lane, between the villages of Kirk Bramwith and South Bramwith.

IMPORTANT NOTES: All customer items must be stored on boats.
Due to the site being on a commercial waterway, it is recommended that extra fenders are used due to the movement of the water space if large freight craft pass through the site.
Mooring bollards/rings may be shared to best manage the water space. Customers can also use the bull rail to secure boats in addition to the mooring bollards/rings.
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.
The mooring site can be viewed from the towpath. A closer view of the secure moorings can be arranged with the Moorings Manager.
