Located just a short walk from the fascinating location of Foxton Locks, Foxton Village moorings enjoy an idyllic spot on the Grand Union Canal.
Foxton village is approximately half a mile from the Locks and has some local amenities and pubs. Market Harborough, approximately four miles away, has a wider selection of supermarkets, shops, and banks.
The site is approximately 130m long and provides space for up to five vessels moored against the towpath.
The mooring site is 185 metres to the east of Bridge 4, Foxton Swingbridge, in the centre of the village. Access is from Swingbridge Street (off Langton Road) and through the gate next to the bridge.
Foxton is approximately 1.5 miles south of the main A6, taking Langton Road.
Facilities, including drinking water, pump-out, rubbish and elsan disposal, are at Market Harborough Basin, approximately 5 miles to the south east. Drinking water, rubbish and elsan disposal are also available at Foxton Locks, just three quarters of a mile west of the moorings. These facilities are provided by and under the control of the local waterway, they do not form part of the mooring agreement.
Car parking is not available at this site so moorers must make alternative arrangements.
There is a wide level, stone towpath and grass verge which runs the full length of the moorings. This provides a cycle/walking route to Market Harborough.
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.
All customer items must be stored on boats and not on any of the surrounding land areas
The mooring site has no access restrictions and can be viewed at any time
